1 year agoGreat Taste and Full FlavorOnce the wine finished clearing/settling, I ran it through a coarse filtration. Friends of ours that are Red Wine drinkers had a fit over it. One friend actually took it to a wine tasting and everyone there said it was fantastic. The first 6 gallons are gone "other than a big bottle I hid".... The second batch is in clearing stage now!! Highly recommend this kit.January 29, 2017Purchased
1 year agoExcellent early kit AAAThat is one helluva kit. A must have wine. Delicious fruity u name it. I added some glycerin for legs. AAA. I think the yeast is the key to retaining the fruityness. High foaming.

11 months agoImpressedLiving in S.W. Virgina we dozens of wineries. We have tasted wines while fermenting to the finished product. In the final clearing stage, the last taste test would indicate this will be a great Pinor Noir. Master Vintner Pinot Noir Reserve is an outstanding value.Stabilizig, clearin and DegassingJanuary 21, 2017Purchased

7 months agoMade a few tweaksI wanted to review this well after it was made instead of right after it was made. Juice itself was good and the final product met with my approval. However, there were a few things I didn't like about the process and I shamelessly disregarded the instructions to do things the way I've always done. I didn't like the idea of opening the primary fermenter every day to stir. That sounded like a good way to inadvertently add the potential for contamination. So, I didn't do that. This kit does not use bentonite anywhere in the process. I like bentonite and I already had some so I added it to the primary right off the bat. I've also never used a yeast nutrient except when I've made wine from wild fruit from the farm so I ignored the kit's packet. I also used some bigger pieces of white oak from my farm I toasted myself instead of what was included in the kit because those tiny little pieces included in every wine kit are a complete pain in the rear to deal with. Other than those changes I followed the directions and made sure the secondary fermentation was between 70 and 75 degrees and overall, I'm satisfied. Will I buy this kit again? Not sure especially when there are so many other types of wine to make but the finished product was worth the price.December 20, 2016Purchased

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.
