Beaverdale Gewurztraminer – 30 Bottle Wine Kit

Beaverdale Gewurztraminer - 30 BottleThe Gewurztraminer (pronounced with a hard G) is a fruity wine of German Alsace origin with an explosive aromatic flavour. The addition of elderflowers with this kit gives it an instantly recognisable and appealing taste, which is distinctive of Rhine wines.

Gewürztraminers are usually dry or off-dry wines with a cleansing fruitiness and a classic, almost elderflower like aroma which is characteristic of the grape.

Gewurztraminer is an aromatic wine grape variety that is used mainly in white wines and performs best in cooler climates. Gewurztraminer is a variety with a pink to red skin colour which makes it a “white wine grape” as opposed to the blue to black-skinned varieties usually referred to as “red wine grapes”. The variety has high natural sugar and is a white wine and just off-dry, with a flamboyant bouquet of lychees. Indeed, Gewurztraminer and lychees share the same aroma compounds.

This dry Gewurztraminer has aromas of roses, passion fruit and floral notes. It is not uncommon to notice some spritz (fine bubbles on the inside of the glass). Its perfumed style is somewhat polarizing; fans adore its intense floral scent and sweet-spice flavours. This is a deliciously bold and satisfying New World Winter warmer wine.

House of Beaverdale Wine Kits

House of Beaverdale is a premium quality range of wine kits that 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 (23 litres) of wine which will produce around 30 bottles of delicious wine. Simple and straightforward, choose your favourite red, white or blush style and be proud of these easy-drinking everyday house wines.

What’s included?

  • A 6-litre pouch of Gewürztraminer style grape concentrate
  • A sachet of dried elderflower
  • A 2g sachet of yeast
  • Yeast nutrient to feed the yeast
  • Wine stabiliser to end the fermenting process
  • Sachets of Chitosan and Kieselsol wine finings to clear the wine
  • Full instructions

What equipment do you need?

This kit contains all the ingredients you’ll need, but you’ll also need the following equipment:

  • Food grade fermenter of no less than 25 L capacity
  • Bung
  • Airlock
  • Syphon kit
  • Hydrometer
  • Mixing spoon/paddle
  • Sanitiser for the equipment
  • 30 x 750 ml wine bottles with corks or stoppers

We also recommend the use of a Vinbrite filter to clear wine to a professional standard.

Food Pairing

When it comes to pairing with food, Gewürztraminer is a superstar. Traditionally it is served with pungent cheese, or blue cheeses such as stilton or Roquefort. It is also compatible with fragrant or spicy foods such as Thai curries or Chinese Sweet and Sour dishes.

Tips

If you can leave it a few months to mature, the wine will greatly improve.
