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 bottles) version.
The Beaverdale range is very popular and is amongst the highest quality 1-gallon wine kits available on the market.
What is Vieux Chateau Du Roi?
This full-bodied, red French wine has a name which roughly translates as "great old house of the king". In the style of famous Chateauneuf Du Pape, this wine is deep purple in colour, rounded and smooth. The bouquet of berries and spices beautifully integrate into an elegant finish with hints of oak.
Vieux Chateau Du Roi is a soft, dry wine but not as heavy as the deep reds such as Shiraz.
Vieux Chateau Du Roi contains a variety of rich, French grapes which are infused with complex favours to produce one of France's most popular wines.
