[CSH117] (car-men-YEHR) Multi-flavored Carmenère from Colchagua shows best when processed with extended oak contact. This kit utilizes a breakthrough, two-stage oaking system. Hungarian oak shavings are introduced at the start of fermentation, then lightly toasted Hungarian oak cubes are used for further extraction during the post-fermentation stage. The oaks together add surprisingly soft tannins, subtle toast, and vanilla, providing a terrific backdrop to the aromas and flavors of blackberry, black cherry, tropical fruit, and spice from the grapes. With age, notes of coffee, mocha, and tobacco can be expected along with a mineral tang that forms as part of the lengthy finish. The wine is medium to full-bodied with bright ruby color. This 18 liter kit makes 6 gallons (30 bottles) of wine. All of the ingredients you will need are included in the kit and are pre-measured along with fool-proof directions.
ABOUT CELLAR CRAFT SHOWCASE: Many of these wine kits stand apart from our other offerings and have been deemed worthy of Showcase designation. Their distinction may come from breakthrough technology, such as exclusive Crushed Grape Packs; unique regional wines or any wine which we believe reflects a new level of excellence or discovery for the wine hobbyist. The level of excellence may require extra processing steps and, while designed to be bottle-ready in as little as 6 weeks, may require lengthier cellaring time to show at their peak.
