Master Vintner® Shiraz makes 6 gallons of earthy, rich, velvety red wine with flavors of black fruits hints of bittersweet chocolate, plums, black cherries and blackberries that linger on to a long finish. Ripe, full and concentrated, this wine bursts with aromas of blackberry, notes of black cherry and blueberry and an assured spiciness. Serve with rich, flavorful dishes like osso buco, roast lamb, traditional Hungarian goulash. For a purely American treat, Carolina pulled pork or Texas brisket. For culinary adventurers, red wine braised octopus. Shiraz isn't just a meat-eating wine though: try it with Puy lentils braised with mushrooms and root vegetables for a savory, satisfying meal. Serve slightly cool (65F) to keep the tannins firm and the fruit lush — and even if you're not doing a food pairing, try it with a piece of bittersweet chocolate. You'll be amazed at how well they go together! Yield: 6 Gallons

Each of the last three red M. V. W. R. kits that I have purchased have foamed over immensely when racking from the primary fermenter to the carboy. I wondered if the cause was due to putting the oak chips in first, but that wasn't the cause. Now I'm wondering if it is the yeast enhancer, since that product was a new step around the same time that the problem began.
Not a fine wine, not a great wine, but still a fiver. MV products are significantly better than Woodbridge, and thus CK and other big bottle table wines, and worth the extra $/ml. Big Advantage: drinkable right away although it does improve with age. Very pleased with this one. Stir it the max to de-gas, however, before clarifying.
My wife said this is the best wine she has had in a long time. Now I have to buy more.
It was easy to make and cleared up great not as ready to drink at bottling as some but sure it will be worth the wait ??????
