SG Wines Gold Merlot – 30 Bottle

SG Wines Gold Merlot - 30 BottleMerlot is a dark blue-coloured wine grape variety, that is used for both varietal wines and as a blending grape. Its softness, combined with its earlier ripening, makes Merlot a popular grape for blending with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, which tends to be higher in tannin. Merlot is one of the primary grapes used in Bordeaux wine, and it is the most widely planted grape in the Bordeaux wine regions. Merlot is also one of the most popular red wine varietals in many markets.

This kit produces 22.5 litres (30 bottles equivalent) of delicious merlot wine in just 7 days.

Start the fermentation on day 1, it’s finished by day 5, and cleared, ready to drink by day 7. These kits are designed to be made as fast as possible, and given the correct temperature to ferment, will be ready to drink within 1 week of making them.

Although it takes around week to finish, we highly recommend leaving this wine for as long as possible for further maturation and to release its more complex flavours and to deepen them further.


Included in the kit is a container of concentrated grape juice and sachets of yeast, stabiliser, finings and addback flavours – this improves taste & bouquet. You will need to add additional sugar (approx. 3.5Kg) and also add water.


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.
