DetailsExploding with candied fruitiness and fresh strawberry aroma, this classically pink wine has hints of Red Zinfandel's greatness-- jam, blueberry, cherry, plum, boysenberry, and cranberry--that run into a tangy finish bursting with strawberry, kiwi and marmalade. It's surprisingly complex, yet easy drinking.
Serve it ice cold (even over ice for really hot days) or use it as the base for the best Sangria you've ever had: it's like wine and fruit salad all at once!

3.0 / 5.02 ReviewsTasty stuffI bought this kit to make a refreshing summertime drink and because most of my friends and family do not like traditional wine. I would describe this as more of a light, fun, beverage, similar to a wine cooler.
I made one change to the kit, I used Red Star Cote des blanc yeast rather than the Lalvin EC-1118 yeast that is included. I'm just not a fan of the EC-1118, it ferments great but I don't like the dry product it produces.
I started this kit on 4/1/17, O.G. 1.058; racked on 4/11/17, S.G. .998, racked again on 4/16/17, S.G. .998. Bottled on 4/23/17.
I tried the first bottle this past weekend. The wine was tasty and smooth. It had an aroma of strawberry; however, it didn't really taste much like strawberry. I gave a few bottles out to friends and family and have gotten good reviews. I recommend this kit to anyone who likes a light and smooth wine-like drink.May 2, 2017Purchased
