argentine malbec wine making, wine kit 

Chilean Malbec

The Chilean Malbec has found uniquely favourable growing conditions in Argentina and has no doubt created one of the most successful and delicious Malbec wines in the world. A combination of desert climate, cold nights, and irrigation of eternal snows from the Andes, creates an especially healthy environment for these vines. An intense bouquet of damson plums, blackcurrant and violet aromas give way to a slight touch of hunting and leather notes. This richly purple coloured Malbec carries a velvety texture with long, soft flavours. Although it ages beautifully, firm tannins and mellow acidityallow this wine to be enjoyed while young.

Australian Shiraz

The grape that was made for Down Under - its hot climate perfec for bringing out the best traits in this popular grape varietal. Australian Shiraz is seductively delicious, with startlingly rich, ripe aromas that deliver right through to the full zesty finish. Amazingly, the style allows for polished tannins early, so the young wine is not rough or harsh. The aged version retains the core fruit flavours of plums, cherries and blackberries, but gains extra polish. Pair this Shiraz with flavourful meals!

Italian Amarone with Grape Skins

Italy's most powerful wine, Amarone is renowned as a fruity, full-bodied, with rich intensity from the dried grapeskins included in the fermentation. Winexpert's Selection International Italian Amarone with Grape Skins is an intense, complex wine, with a wide array of flavours and aromas. Deep, nearly opaque red, this heavyweight exudes aromas of sour cherries, dark chocolate, stewed plums, dried fruits, anise, raisins, bitter almond, tobacco, leather and molasses, and has a spicy-earthy bittersweet finish that goes on and on, from the huge volume of tannins.
Pair with grilled beef, strong dry cheeses (Parmigiano Reggiano or Asiago), pasta with meat-based tomato sauces, antipasto, veal or roast pork. The gripping tannin in this wine also makes it a natural for other red meats and game, and the fruit lifts up well herbed or spiced dishes.

Italian Brunello with grape skins

Winexpert's Selection International Italian Brunello with skins is a dark-cherry colour with highlights of gorgeous ruby-garnet. Bold, yet supple, the big, smoky-earthy nose of ultra-ripe cherry and currant-like fruit gives way to a hint of tar and cracked black pepper, cedar, whiffs of liquorice, leather, and also plums and black cherries, followed by a richly tannic, long, long finish.
The super concentrated flavours are generous even in youth, but this sensational wine is sensational after six months to a year. Good acidity makes this a very food friendly wine: like many Italian reds, Brunello shines in the company of assertively flavoured foods. Osso buco and veal piccata are splendid accompaniments, as are hard cheeses such as asiago and Pecorino Romano. Its firm backbone of acids and tannins make it work well with rich and spicy foods like Italian sausages or lasagna.

Spanish Tempranillo with Grape Skins

Selection International Grape Skins Spanish Tempranillo shows the black cherry, raspberry, plum and tobacco notes of the varietal, but the wine tends towards lushness and an overflowing of soft, ripe tannins, rather than bright fruit.  Vanilla and spice notes in the oak give way to a beguiling hint of dark coffee on the finish.  Medium-to-full bodied, it will drink well under three months and will soften impressively after six months to a year in the bottle.  Serve with tapas, like grilled chorizo, rich tomoato dishes like Moussaka or even grilled sardines.
