Shiraz is considered as one of the greatest noble black grape varieties around, due to its ability to produce dark, age-worthy, full-bodied wines. Shiraz is a robust, dark-skinned variety producing equally full-bodied and powerful wines. It provides flavours and aromas of black fruits, pepper and mint, developing notes of espresso, liquorice and chocolate in hotter conditions and, with age, leather, truffles and earthy aromas. Pure grape concentrate is used in these high quality wine kits which allows people to produce fine wines in their own homes. The Beaverdale range of wine kits rival those produced commercially in the greatest wine producing regions.These come from all over the world, and represent some of the finest grape varieties.
This range of wine kits are a celebration of sunshine.
