Seasonal Wine Kits – Preorder by Monday, July 25
Free Corks! (with the purchase of an RQ wine kit)
WINEXPERT ESTATE SERIES SPECIAL PROMOTION
Winexpert’s Selection Estate Series represents the some of the finest wine kits available to the home winemaker. They contain more than 4 gallons of 100% varietal grape juice concentrate, each sourced from a different world-renowned grape growing region. Now, for a limited time only and only while supplies last, we are giving away an attractive and convenient insulated cooler (fits 2 wine bottles) with a corkscrew with the purchase of any Estate Series wine kit. We are also introducing 2 new Estate Series wine kits from Winexpert’s “Small Lots” program, which again are only available while supplies last.
SMALL LOTS: THREE CONTINENTS RED MERITAGE
Varietals: 70% Spanish Valencia Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Washington Red Mountain Cabernet Franc, 5% Washington Red Mountain Petit Verdot, 5% Chilean Isla del Maipo Merlot and 5% Chilean Isla del Maipo Carménère
Style: Three Continents Red Meritage is the New World expression of the tradition of red Bordeaux wines, blending the gripping tannins and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon, the violets and cedar notes of Petit Verdot, the raspberry and cassis of Cabernet Franc, the cherry and plum fleshiness of Merlot and the red fruit spiciness of Carménère into a uniquely ripe and boldly warm wine. $161.49
SMALL LOTS: THREE CONTINENTS WHITE MERITAGE
Varietals: 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Semillon Sources: California Lake County and Emilia Romagna, Italy (Sauvignon Blanc) and Mullaroo Vineyards, South Australia (Semillon)
Style: Meritage is the New World expression of the tradition of White Bordeaux wines, blending the crisp herbaceousness of Sauvignon Blanc with the melony fruit of Semillon for a fully rounded and robust wine, age-worthy and oak-kissed, with a more fully ripe character that rewards both early drinking and cellaring in unique ways. $154.95
SEASONAL WINE KITS FROM WINEXPERT
We are now taking preorders for Winexpert’s incredibly popular seasonal wine kits. We strongly recommend that you preorder the kits that you want by MONDAY, JULY 25, since they sell out very quickly every year. A $50 deposit will be required. Of course we will order extras, but we can’t guarantee availability after Monday. The kits, which include all the necessary ingredients plus 30 attractive labels, will be available to pick up in September. Order online today!
CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY PORT
Bursting with luscious bittersweet chocolate and bright raspberry, this this full-bodied wine boasts a magnificent traditional Port character with toasty oak in the finish. A multiple Gold Medal winner at the past four WineMaker Amateur Wine Competitions. Chocolate Raspberry Port is delicious with roasted nuts, shortbread or any dessert. Makes 3 gallons; $114.95.
OKANAGAN PEACH ICEWINE
Deep ﬂoral notes, stone fruit and perfect sweetness, balanced with the sun-ripened perfume of a luscious peach. A Gold Medal winner at the past three WineMaker Amateur Wine Competitions. This wine would make an excellent accompaniment to earthy or salty cheeses like Danish blue or Tilsit, spicy tapas or flavorful Asian dishes. Makes 3 gallons; $116.95.
Rich, intense blackberry flavors with lingering tannins and a gorgeous deep purple hue combine to be an excellent foil for the broad richness of traditional Port. Blackberry Port is a superb complement to intense cheeses, roasted nuts, or especially chocolate desserts. Makes 3 gallons; $114.95
WINEXPERT GAMAY NOUVEAU
Fresh and juicy, Gamay Nouveau is a bold young wine, purple-pink color, and bursting with an amazing array of fruit aromas. It’s low tannin levels make it extremely drinkable when young, and it has traditionally been produced in Beaujolais, France to celebrate the end of the harvest season. Unlike most Winexpert kits, the Gamay Nouveau will be ready to enjoy on bottling day! By preordering your kit now, you can ensure that you will be able to complete the fermentation and start enjoying your wine by the traditional release date, the third Thursday in November. The French have torchlight parades, fireworks and music festivals, but you can have as much fun with your own, smaller scale Nouveau party! Serve the wine lightly chilled (55 deg F), and it will display hints of banana, pear, candy and even bubble gum. Makes 6 gallons; $125.95.
FREE CORKS! (with the purchase of any RJ SPAGNOLS RESTRICTED QUANTITY WINE KIT)
We have some great Restricted Quantity (RQ) wine kits from RJ Spagnols in stock, and we’re giving away a free packet of 30 corks for every one that you buy, while supplies last. Also, if you already purchased any RQ kits from us this year, you can come in any time between now and July 31 to pick up a free packet of corks for each kit. We also have some Limited Edition kits remaining, but this promotion does not apply to kits from Winexpert. You can order any of these kits by phone or online, but supplies are very limited so we recommend calling ahead for availability (especially if you want to pick up in Bethlehem). Please note that we are SOLD OUT of the Chilean Trek wine kit.
All of our wine kits may be ordered online, and are available to be shipped: http://shop.keystonehomebrew.com/Zilron/catalog1_0.html
