Fresh Malbec Juice and Skins for 2021!

Fresh Malbec Juice and Skins for 2021!

It’s Time for Malbec!

For the last 20 years we have been bringing in fresh Malbec juice and grapes from Chile. Last year we brought in over 5000L litres! Starting today, we are now taking orders for the 2021 Malbec. Once again we will be offering two versions of the Malbec. 

What is Malbec?

Once a year with our partners in Chile we import a large batch of freshly harvested Malbec juice. Combining this raw, beautiful juice with our professional winemaking abilities and equipment results in an incredible wine. It tastes superb right away, but aging it takes it to the next level. We offer two versions of our Malbec. One is made from pure Malbec juice, and the other is made on fresh Malbec grape skins.

Those who order Malbec made from pure juice only will be treated to a full bodied, indigo coloured wine. It has dark jammy fruit flavours featuring notes of dark cherry, cocoa, and black pepper. It is something truly unique and absolutely worth trying. The 2020 Malbec from Juice had an ABV of 15.5% when it was finished! It was a BIG wine. 

What is Different About Malbec Made on Skins?

Making Malbec on skins brings out more tannins, darker colour, and a greater intensity of flavours. Wines made in this fashion are designed to be cellared for years. I am still enjoying my rapidly diminishing stock of 2018 Malbec on skins, it has just hit its peak, especially after being open for an hour or two. It really illustrates how well the Malbec can age with time.

What is the Pricing?

These prices include all service charges, taxes, and corks for wines made in store.
Malbec:  $92.99/11L or $523.99/66L (bulk order price break)
Malbec with Skins: $134.65/11L or $773.89/66L (bulk order price break)
Malbec juice for home winemakers: $68.99/11L
Malbec skins for home winemakers: $103.99/11L
Home winemakers, please take note. Our Malbec juice is extremely fresh and it needs to be picked up within a couple days of us receiving it in early to mid April. We can’t ship it either, so it has to be picked up. 

How to order?

Simple! Let us know via InstagramFacebookEmail, or by calling or visiting us in store (re-opening on Thursday March 4th). Let us know what you would like and we will pre-order it for you. We will need you to visit us in store after ordering to finalize the order. The deadline to order is Saturday, April 10! After that, it will not be available until Spring 2022. We aim to have the Malbec in store by April 9 and we intend to have it ready to be bottled in mid June.
This year we will have limited quantities available

We shop online, and we know how much it sucks to pay for shipping. For the past couple of years we have done everything we can to keep shipping costs as low as possible, but it can be challenging to offer competitive rates as a small business. 

We have been hard at work thinking on ways we can reduce shipping costs for our clients. Starting today, here are some ways we can get your order to you for free or at a very reduced price.

Hello everyone! As I am sure you have heard, the Ontario government is in the process of beginning to re-open the province. Starting the day after Family Day (Feb 16) retail shops, among other businesses will be allowed to re-open in some capacity.

The staff at KJ have discussed the merits of re-opening, and we have decided to delay re-opening our store until at least March 1st. We’re concerned about the safety of our staff and the higher risk demographics that we serve. We want to see how the next couple of weeks go, especially with the new variants beginning to spread. We may yet delay our re-opening past March 1st and will update our status accordingly.

We will continue to take orders over the phone or on our online website. We will also continue to bottle wine for our clients. We are striving to offer the best service possible while also keeping everyone safe.
