6 months agoGreat Wine!So far so good, it smelled great transferring it to secondary but I added oak chips to it and for me that adds more body, more texture and flavor more levels of taste. Looking forward to the finished product!March 12, 2019Purchased
6 months agoEasy, beautiful and taste is exceptional.I usually pick my own fruit so this is the first kit I’ve ever used. I have to say, this was so easy and convenient! The wine turned out 14% abv and cleared beautifully. The taste is outstanding. I compared my Pinot Noir to 2 other well known brands and guess what? I like mine better! Wasn’t expecting that.February 23, 2019Purchased

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 9 answersWould it be ok to add sugar to increase the ABV to this kit?BEST ANSWER: I am not an expert, but you should be able to chaptalize this kit. I would research how-to and how much sugar to add. Be careful though, I had challenges degassing this kit.The description above mentions the use of oak chips for this wine “Pinot Noir with oak (not included)”. What oak chips and how much of them do you recommend using?BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what is NOT INCLUDED. We purchased this and the oak chips were included? We used what the kit contained. Sorry, we can't be of help with this.How long do these kits generally hold up for before using and what is the proper storage recommendation?
Also what is the juice concentration percentage on these Master Vintner kits?BEST ANSWER: At least 1 year if not longer without any negatives in the final wine. Out of direct light, below 70 degrees. These are 10 liter kits so there is more concentrate than in some - the percentage varies and the kits are not rated this way.would it be OK to add some oak spirals while fermenting or after? Would this hurt the flavor?BEST ANSWER: If you desired more oakiness, you could add some spirals to your secondary. Do so cautiously though, a small amount goes a long way.
