Old Vine Zinfandel w/ Skins - 6 Gallon Wine Kit - Master Vintner Sommelier Select
When vines get past their fourth decade, they produce fewer grapes, but much more intense fruit, giving rich, dense wine* with great character and ageing potential.
Medium-full bodied with firm acidity, this Old Vine Zin shows a combination of red and black fruits--raspberry, blackberry, fig, plum and raisin, along with an intriguing black pepper spiciness on the rich, rolling finish. An excellent match with dark chocolate (try it!), it's also a great barbecue wine (especially chicken), or with lamb, pulled pork or grilled burgers.
Yields 6 gallons
*This recipe kit uses a RealGrape pack to boost flavor and body. Because the grape skins are not dried, they take up more space in your fermentor. This recipe requires the larger 7.9 gallon wine fermentor.
