Your Syrah Tuscan Tavola Finer Wine Kit is made from top quality California grapes. This kit was originally created as a Super Tuscan alternative because Sangiovese was not available. Now that Sangiovese is back in the Super Tuscan blend, this wine kit will remain available to you as the Syrah Tuscan due to its overwhelming popularity. The combination of Syrah and Grenache fuse to create a fruity yet earthy wine with a cherry bouquet that that is balanced by the dark fruit and spicy tones of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This blend is a Finer Wine Kits original that will leave your friends asking for more.
The Tavola Series reds are the most versatile Finer Wine Kits available. Based on your preferences, your results can range between lighter and medium bodied wines depending on if you make them with no skins, a single or double skin pack. Double skins give the wine a richer tannin profile similar to a Forte Series kit but with a more subtle flavor profile because of a lower ABV. Tavola wines made with double skin packs have deeper color and heavier body, but require longer aging (6 - 12 months.) A single skin pack will also improve the tannins and body but will require less aging (4-6 months.) Using no skins produces a great light to medium bodied wine that is ready to drink the fastest (6 - 12 weeks.) Kits with double skin packs also come with oak cubes which impart more vanilla qualities.

OTHER PRODUCTS YOU MIGHT NEED
If your Syrah Tuscan Tavola Wine Kit is your first, equipment kits are a very easy and cost effective way to obtain what you need to get started. Wine kits provide ingredients and instructions but do not provide equipment. The Vintner's Best Deluxe Wine Equipment Kit pictured here has everything you need to make a six gallon batch of wine. Each batch yields approx. 28 to 30 - 750ml bottles of wine. This kit is the top of the line and there are other equipment kits you can choose from for your kit.
Equipment Kit includes
- 7.9 Gallon Fermenting Bucket
- Lid with Grommet
- 6 Gallon Glass Carboy
- Bottle Filler
- Double Level Corker
- Triple Scale Hydrometer
- Easy Clean Cleanser
- Auto Siphon w/ siphon hose
- Carboy Bung w/ Airlock
- Corks 30 count
- Plastic Mix Stir that attaches to drill
A 7.9 Gallon Fermenter with a grommeted lid is the right vessel to use for your Syrah Tuscan Wine Kit because you need extra headspace to account for active fermentation. It is good to replace buckets from time because plastic harbors bacteria. Here's a link to our fermenter equipment.
Many people reuse their hoses for far too long. Replacing your hoses often is highly recommended with winemaking. Even if you have good sanitation practices, hoses are particularly difficult to keep clean. You do not want to risk a bacterial contamination in your Syrah Tuscan Wine Kit over something that costs very little to replace.
Auto-siphons are a great luxury item to have in your winemaking equipment. Once you have one you will never go without one again. Don't forget to use a heavy duty sanitizer to clean it since you don't want to replace it often as hoses. A good sanitizer for that job is Five Star San. Like hoses, Siphons are also difficult to keep clean so it is advisable to replace them.
Corking can be a big job especially if you make a lot of wine. Also bigger corkers give you the option to use longer corks which are beneficial if you want to age your Syrah Tuscan longer. The Italian Floor Corker pictured here is easy to use and makes corking easy and fun.
Airlocks are another inexpensive product that should be periodically replaced. Though it might be easy to assume bacteria is not a concern with airlocks because they do not actually touch your wine, this is not the case. A small increase in temperature could cause your wine to swell and back up into the airlock. It happens often. You don't want to risk losing your Syrah Tuscan over a potentially unsanitary and cheap piece of plastic.
Your Syrah Tuscan Kit is designed to fit a 6 gallon carboy pictured here. Though glass carboys are one of the safest sanitary options for secondary fermentation and bulk aging your wine, they are fragile and break from time to time. If you use glass carboys, a carboy handle or carrier is very advisable. They should not be moved when full without carrying equipment.
Your Syrah Tuscan will need to sit in a carboy during secondary fermentation and like airlocks, bungs and stoppers should also be periodically replaced, especially if you make a lot of wine. Stoppers are available drilled for use with airlocks or solid for bulk aging after your wine has fully gassed out. The size 6.5 stopper pictured is made for a 6 or 5 gallon carboy. If you have many different sized vessels, universal bungs might be a more economical option.
Hydrometers can last a lifetime, if they don't break. If you have suffered the disappointment of breaking your favorite hydrometer you can view them here.
Winemakers always need more corks. Be sure to read the corker requirements of different corks before you make your selection because some cork sizes do not work with all corkers. If you want to age your Syrah Tuscan longer corks are preferable.
You may be using the back of your stirring spoon to Degas your wine but a mix stir is the best way to remove unwanted gasses from your wine.
