Burnaby Brewing has been experimenting with different wines and blends for many years and has come up with very exciting new wines made from some very unique and rare varietals. We call them Burnaby Brewing Exotica Red and Burnaby Brewing Exotica White.
The Exotica blends have been increasing in popularity since their introduction to our selection of quality wine kits. Many customers remark that they are the best wines they have ever made and tasted! We entered our Exotica Red into the WineMakers International Amateur Wine Making Competition and it won a gold medal!
Exotica Red and Exotica White are made in large drums and fermented for 3 weeks before they are racked down and fermentation is stopped. From there they sit for another 2-3 weeks and are then racked off their yeast bed. After yet another 2-3 weeks they are then filtered and ready for bottling.
We usually recommend aging Exotica Red for at least 6 months to a year before consumption because of the intense tannins. Exotica white will also smooth out with age but is much more palatable sooner.
