Worked nicely, needed a few extra bottles, but otherwise a good buy.
The wine turned out satisfactorily. The only beef that I have is that there were 2 cases of 12 bottles included for a 30 bottle kit. Number 9 corks would be a nice upgrade too.
A nice wine and a great deal. Letting it age a little. Initial sips were very good.
Yes I bought two kits over a short period of time and the Chardonnay was nice but I also purchased the Merlot I threw the oak into the fermenter on day one and let it sit for 2 extra week and condition for 4 more weeks in the secondary. I figured this would need some aging like the Chardonnay but it was ready to drink on bottling day. I even gave a few bottles away and have had multiple calls from friends telling me how amazing it was. Would buy the Merlot kit again in a heartbeat.
The Chardonnay was really nice but will become even better with some age. Amazing deal for people new to making wine.
