The reason you haven't found a recipe for making that wine is simple because its really only guidelines for making wine from grapes. Even then stylistic changes by the wine maker can have different out comes. Even on the same grapes from the same vineyard.
If you can start with juice only from the grower, try that this year. The reason for that is to get you thru your first time with grapes as trouble free as possible. The numbers you posted look real good. You could just pitch yeast on the batch you get from the grower if he has crushed, pressed, and settled out the juice for you.Then the only thing you need to do is follow how the fermentation is going. Rack the wine to secondary fermentor when it gets to around 1.010. Rack again when fermentation is complete, so2 and sorbate at this racking will help stabilize the wine. Once the wine is clear either by clearing on its own,fining and or filtering you can then back sweeten the wine to taste and bottle after that. Thats some general guidelines for you. I hope you do take the plunge into grape wine making. As you get more experience you can try all kinds of different things to help improve the end product.
