Although the purchasing process could be considered a 5 star experience it is far to soon to rate the product itself except for saying that the kit was complete the instructions clear and complete with the buying process being seamless.
We ordered the wine kit and expected shipment notice within 1 to 2 days. The shipment was about 5 days after ordering-not sure if covid related, but can understand shipping is moving slower than usual. Shipment “delay” is the only reason for 4 stars and not 5. Otherwise, great website and ordering process and keeping me informed. Great prices and shipping policies. BTW, can't comment on the wine yet....but, looks like wine, smells like wine, probably is wine...we'll see after about year of aging. :). Seriously, I am impressed with the quality of ingredients in the En Primeur Kits. I'm planning on buying other kits once this is bottled.
So far this is my favorite kit from Midwest. I am currently in the secondary fermentation stage, but it is going great. I can't wait to have this wine for the holidays!
I have to say it is totally worth the extra cost for these En Primeur Kits. You get 18 L of juice plus the grape skins. I extended my primary fermentation to 8 weeks on the grape skins and initial oak. Then an extended secondary fermentation as well for 6 weeks on the second oak addition. The acid balance and fermentation levels came out perfect. In fact on bottling day the wine had a much more well rounded mature flavor with tastes and aromas of your typical Amarone wine. I started in October and bottled in March. The wine taste great now and I look forward to how it will age.
Wonderful red wine!! Fruit and oak flavors both come through and compliment each other.
