House of Beaverdale contains pure grape concentrate of such high quality that it allows people to produce fine wines in their own homes, in a range of wines to rival those produced professionally in the greatest wine producing regions of the world.
To achieve this, Beaverdale use single grape varieties, or grapes from an area like Rioja. These come from all over the world, and represent some of the finest grape varieties. The grapes are carefully balanced with sugars to maintain the very highest standards of consistency and quality.
Like all grape wines, wine produced from Beaverdale kits will improve with keeping, but we firmly believe that even within a week of the wine being finished, you will be more than delighted with the taste. If, however, a few bottles from each batch can be laid down, they will have a chance to mature perfectly.
The six bottle size has one and a half litres of concentrate, the 30 bottle size has seven and a half litres of concentrate. This is ideal as it allows a 6 bottle ’trial’ to be made before committing to making 30 bottles. No sugar needs to be added to these kits.
The packaging for Beaverdale kits is designed so when the kit is being made the wine bag is filled ’hot’, so the preservative has been reduced to a much lower level than is typical of wine kits. This was real benefit to the Beaverdale wine kit because it really improved the bouquet and the taste.
All the kits have yeast, stabiliser and finings supplied and are perfect for a beginner who is looking for quality wine.
