Usually those big buttery Chards have gone through a malolactic fermentation and have spent some time in an oak barrel. As far as I know, it is not recommended to put a kit wine through a MLF. Too much trouble, too. That's where the big finish with vanilla and butter come from.
The best and safest way to modify a kit wine is to use a different yeast. The weekday wine comes with EC-1118. Great performer and is neutral. I like to use Lalvin DC-47 instead. Improves mouthfeel and enhances fruit flavors. I think the weekday wine kit is well balanced, so I wouldn't mess around with enzymes and additives. Remember you are making wine in 6 weeks not 2 years. Best of luck!are oak chips included in this kit?BEST ANSWER: Hi Mary,
