DetailsMaster Vintnerâ„˘ Chardonnay makes six gallons of crisp & fresh wine, with a rich bouquet of citrusy fruit blending into aromas of peach and pineapple-melon. Dry to medium-dry with notes of pear, apple, tropical and citrus fruit.
Tropical flavors intermingle with piquant tree fruits for a clean, medium-dry mouthfeel. Serve chilled and pair with fish, seafood and hors d'oeuvres.
Master VintnerÂ® Chardonnay ages very well with oak (not included), developing elegant vanilla-spice flavors, hints of smoked wood and a rich, buttery mouthfeel.
Yield: 6 Gallons

1 year agoThis wine has a smooth mouth feel. It is lightly oaked. It has grown better with a little aging.November 10, 2017Purchased
1 year agoIt was a hit!We left the oak out of this recipe, and at the bottling phase we filtered and put it straight into a keg for bubbly for a holiday family party. Our hosts bought many bottles of champagne that remained untouched throughout the night to drink this instead. Seriously so good!!!!DIY bubbly!January 9, 2018Turned out great 1st time outFirst wine we made. Has been in the bottle about 3 months or so and tastes much better than right before.
I will most likely do this again since many people seem to like it.November 27, 2017Great product except for one thingI like everything about this kit except the lack of bentonite. I simply do not want to open the lid every day during primary fermentation to stir it up. That's just trouble waiting to happen. However, bentonite is cheap and easily available so I used it. I also only used about a 1/4 of the oak since I'm not a fan of heavily-oaked Chardonnay but less oak let the taste of the very nice grapes shine through. All in all, it's a decent product for the price point and everyone I've served it to has liked it which makes it a great choice to make for parties.July 23, 2017Purchased
9 months agoThis has been a very good chardonnay. I keep a batch going all the time. I normally don't oak it but the current batch has about a fourth of the oak in it so we'll see how it is. I would recommend this wine.June 5, 2017Purchased

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 14 answersMy wife really likes the one gallon kits are these comprable to that?BEST ANSWER: Hi,
Jimmie here tp provide you some thoughts...
The one gallon kits (in my opinion) give you a good wine, but from my experience, the 5/6 gallon kits give you a better flavor and smoothness in the end product. Plus when you make a larger batch, you have some aging for future use and it will be even smoother and have less initial bite (my experience talking) but everyone's tastes vary. I would say try it and if you don't like the results, use it as gifts? and let everyone provide you feedback.any preservatives ?BEST ANSWER: Just potassium metabisulfite. But some people donâ€™t consider it a preservative because you can buy aftermarket preservatives for home wine kits.Where are the grapes grown?BEST ANSWER: Each batch varies but for the most part unless it says it's from Italy or Australia or France then assume that it is from the US and therefore California. I have already made this batch of Chardonnay and bottled it well over 6 months ago. And it came out amazing, very buttery! Would deff recommend to anyone that loves a good Chardonnay.
