This refreshingly fruity Merlot has a lovely smooth taste enhanced by the fruit addition of Raspberry and Cassis. The result is a perfect balance of fruits combined with the plum flavours of the Merlot grape leaving you wanting more and more. Produces 30 bottles of red wine, using six litres of high-quality, 50% concentrate grape juice, so no extra sugar is required for fermentation.

Equipment you will need to make this wine kit:
  • 25-litre fermentation vessel
  • Steriliser
  • Syphoning kit
  • 30 wine bottles with corks or other closures
  • Hydrometer
Also suggested: Second fermentation vessel for racking, bottling stick, shrink capsules, hand or bench corker.
 
Please note that while the instructions state that this wine is ready to drink in seven days, it will benefit enormously from being allowed to mature for at least a month and preferably two months, before drinking. In fact, the longer you leave it, the better it will get, although it probably won't improve noticeably after six months. Maturing can be done after bottling, but if you have a glass carboy, then bulk maturing under an airlock, will give even better results.
