What is it?
Beaverdale is a premium quality wine kit which requires no added sugar (all of the sugar content is contained within the grape juice). Everything you need to make this wine is included with the kit (except water). The wine can be drunk young, but unlike some 3 week wine kits, it will continue to mature if you are patient. This kit will make 1 gallon (4.5 litres) of wine, which will produce around 6 bottles of delicious wine. The kit is easy to make and if you get hooked on the style it is also available in a 5 gallon (30 bottle) version.
The Beaverdale range is very popular and is amongst the highest quality 1 gallon wine kits available on the market.
What is Rojo Tinto?
Rojo Tinto, better known as Rioja is well known for its structure and tannins, similar to Cabernet Sauvignon, but it also has a fruity characteristic. This wine is perfect for those who love Cabernet but also looking for the dominant cherry flavour which is often present in a wine like Pinot Noir. Rioja is Spain in a glass, it owes its name to one of the seven rivers that meander their way through the area's mountainous north, where the vineyard-lined valley is home to a variety of grapes. Rojo Tinto is a dry wine full of black fruit flavours with hints of vanilla, spice and oak. It has a blend of Tempranillo and Garnache grapes. The Tempranillo gives fragrance and finesse to the wine, while the Garnache give colour and power to the wine.
