All of the "Solomon Grundy" range of wine kits were rebranded and repackaged as SG Wines in Summer 2023 to reduce packaging, increase recyclability and provide clearer ingredient listings.
This SG PLATINUM kit is a mix of grape juice, fruite juices and sugar and produces a fruity Merlot wine, with juicy berry notes and a smooth oaky finish.
It contains a approximately 5 litres of concentrate and only requires water to produce up to 30 bottles of wine which is usually ready for drinking in as little as 7 days. The kit contains full instructions, yeast and wine finings. The wine is ready to drink immediately but will improve in flavour if left for a further 3 - 4 weeks.
The following information is taken from the manufacturer's website:
The Sulphites are found in the "Stabilising Powder" and the crustaceans are part of the clearing solution, so both can be avoided if you are prepared to leave your wine to clear naturally or prefer to use Bentonite as a clearing agent.
