The Skins Game

November 4, 2011

For those of us who enjoy a flavourful full bodied red wine the Selection International with Skins kits are a must try. There are 4 styles:



-Australian Petit Verdot

-Sicilean Nero D’Avola

-Spanish Tempranillo

-Chilean Malbec Shiraz

So, why try a skin kit?

· 16.4 litres of juice and concentrate and 1.6 litres of grapeskins—18 litres total 
· Six week winemaking schedule 
· Layered flavour and a complex profile 
· Bolder flavours and aromas 
· Country of origin designation 
· Drinkable at 3 months of age, with potential for cellaring

Also included in with the kit is a mesh bag put the grape skins in so there is very little mess and 30 peel and stick on/peel off dry Wine Bottle Labels.

So, treat yourself- They’re all great wines, featuring unique styles with Big, Big flavours!
