RJ Spagnols Cru International Meritage (Canadian Okanagan) Wine Kit - NEW LIMITED RELEASE!!
We are excited to announce that Craft Winemakers will have the opportunity to make their own Meritage wine with grapes originating from Okanagan, Canada. Cru International Meritage kits will be available to order for a limited time only, while quantities last! The Meritage kit will make a wine that has a full-bodied palate with a signature long smoky finish, that are true to character for this unique Niagara, Ontario variety!
Explore the Canadian Okanagan in your own way with Cru International's Okanagan Meritage. This limited release arrives in October!
This dry, medium-bodied wine opens on the nose with delicious aromas of red currant, cassis, vanilla, cigar box, and spices. On the palate, it unveils a round mouthfeel with polished tannins for a supported finish.
Pair this wine with braised beef with pomme puree, bison burgers with blue cheese, garlic lamb chops with chickpea puree, or triple cream cheese.
The Canadian Okanagan is a beautiful and expansive valley stretching over 250km, where mother nature has created the ideal climate for viticulture. The lake that spans the valley helps to temper the summer heat, alongside the Cascade and Coast Mountains which create a rain shadow effect, resulting in the perfect growing conditions for grapes. The Okanagan is known for its wineries and fruit orchards and is surrounded by pine forests and provincial parks.
Includes 125 g of Genuwine Dried Grape Skins. Genuwine grape skins are crushed, whole grape skins, gently dried in a proprietary process that preserves their original color and fresh vineyard flavor. Fermentation on Genuwine dried grape skins enhances the color, flavor profile and bouquet of wine. Genuwine grape skins are easy to work with and consistently provide excellent results.
Note: All Cru International Kits are 12L and reds come with skins for a bolder/richer taste than other competing wine kits which are typically 10L! You'll be pleasantly pleased!!
