Zinfandel rose is a fresh, off-dry and spritzy wine. Zinfandel is made from the Zinfandel wine grape, from California, which would otherwise produce a bold and spicy red wine. White Zinfandel is not a grape variety but a method of processing Zinfandel grapes. Zinfandel's that are produced commercially are usually red or blush and can vary in taste from smooth with earthy qualities to to sharp and full bodied. The Californian varietal produces a mellow fruity character with a distinctive floral taste. This produces an excellent table wine.
This kit produces 22.5 litres (30 bottles equivalent) of delicious, refreshing white zinfandel 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 1 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.
Basic winemaking equipment is required for this kit, which can be found in the 'Starter Kits' section of our website.
