The Master Vintner Reserve Chardonnay kit was the first Chardonnay kit I made. Since then, I've tried several other more expensive Chardonnay kits thinking the extra $ would make for a better end result. I was wrong! This kit remains my favorite out of all that I've tried and is the reason I've ordered several more orders since then.
I will say that I do prefer to use the French Oak Cubes (Light Roast) more than the American oak chips that this comes with. I've also tried the French Oak Cubes with a Medium Roast, however, that was a little more oak than it needed, but still yielded a very good result. The oak cubes are easier to remove and sift out and don't clog up the siphon when transferring the wine to another carboy. The light toast French oak seems to be the best at imparting decent buttery notes without overpowering the wine with an oak flavor.
Excellent results using this kit, my friends have expressed a very pleasant experience with the results from Master Vintner. Definitely one to purchase again.
We love northern brewer! We've gotten many products from them, however it seems like this time we might have gotten a batch of bad yeast, as we haven't seen any bubbles in our airlock yet after 2 weeks. Still hoping for good things!
i tasted the wine at bottling and it was good but need still needed time in the bottle to make it better. I'm giving it 2 months before trying it again.
I've been making this kit for quite a few years. It always seems to come out very good. Easy kit to make. I add water to this kit by SG not volume and make 3 or4 kits together.
