Cellar Craft's Showcase Series white wine kits include a huge 16L of varietal juice and concentrate! Sources from some of the finest vineyards around the world, these wines really shine! Under contract with Cellar Craft, the vineyards used to create these kits are limited to a harvest load of just 3 tons/acre. Gently processed and soft pressed, the juices are then settled by gravity alone - no enzymes, filter aids or fining agents are used in the process. Additionally, the juices are never altered - no sugars, botanicals, esters, etc. have been added. What you get is essentially professionally handled varietal white must, slightly concentrated.
Like other kits on the market, Cellar Craft's Showcase Series white wine kits come with all the ingredients you'll need to make a great wine out of the box. However, we encourage you to also experiment with different yeast strains and oak styles to create a wine that is exactly what you're looking for and truly unique.
While technically ready to bottle and drink in 6 weeks, Cellar Craft recommends aging these wines for 1 year or more to see full development of the wine's character. Choose to age in the carboy if you want the opportunity to play around with acidity and finishing additives later, or age in the bottle to see what you get straight from the manufacturer. Just be careful - we all know how hard it is to keep your hands off once the wine's in the bottle!

Cellar Craft's Description
Lazy Lizard Vineyard, Yakima Valley, Washington
Winner of 3 Golds in 2008!
Displays aromatic notes of green apple and lemon against a floral and honeyed background. Our natural Flavour Reserve creates a rich mouth-feel with tangy fruit acid balancing the hint of sweetness. Floral and mineral notes persist in the lingering finish. The wine’s full character and charm become most apparent after several months of bottle aging. Should show well for up to 18 months. A good choice for foods rich in butter and oil, garlic and lively spices. Consider for shrimp, crab and fish dishes, rich pastas, cannelloni with ricotta, chicken and most Chinese and Thai dishes. Serve lightly chilled.
