What is it?
Beaverdale Sauvignon Blanc 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 5 gallons (22.5 litres) of wine which will produce around 30 bottles of delicious wine.
The Beaverdale range is very popular and is amongst the highest quality 5-gallon wine kits available on the market.
What is Sauvignon Blanc?
Sauvignon Blanc is a green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France. The grape gets its name from the French word sauvage meaning wild and blanc meaning white.
Sauvignon Blanc is "crisp, elegant, and fresh", as described by various wine experts, and gives grassy aromas. It is bursting with summer fruit flavours like honeydew melon, nectarine and peach. Sauvignon Blanc tastes very different from other white wines like Chardonnay because of its green and herbaceous flavours and is probably the most popular white wine in the world right now.
