Cantina 5 day Pink Chardonnay - "30 bottle" (21ltr) Rose wine kit BBE 11/18
A quick fermenting, but surprisingly drinkable, Pink Chardonnay "30 bottle" (21ltr) wine kit
1 in stock.
This kit has passed its best before date and, whilst it will still be perfectly drinkable, you may get a little darkening of the must or crystallisation of the sugars and you may need to make up a yeast starter or use a different yeast to ensure fermentation. The Cantina range of wine kits contains 5 litres of concentrated grape juice which means that no additional sugar is required to make up to 30 bottles of wine. Unlike most of our large wine kits, which are made up to 23ltrs, the Cantina kits are made up to 21ltrs and will not actually give you "30 bottles" unless you only put 70cl in each bottle rather than the 75cl found in a "standard" wine bottle. If you are using "standard" wine bottles, you will only get about 24-26 bottles in practice.
This Cantina Pink Chardonnay is a very light Rose based on Chardonnay grapes with aromas of strawberry and a nose of blackcurrents.
Using a special strain of yeast, these wine kits ferment in around 5 days, clear in 2 days and are, nominally, ready to drink immediately. In practice, as with all commercial wines, it improves immeasurably if left for a few months to mature.
