This wine is good while bottling. Looking forward to what it will taste like after 6 months but I never seam to find out.
It’s difficult for me to review as this was my very first attempt at winemaking. I consider myself to have above average knowledge of wine, but it’s limited to tastings and understanding of the qualities and variables which go into different wines. With all that said I was very pleased to produce a very drinkable Pinot Noir. For my taste it is a bit fuller bodied than what I’m used to from a Pinot but has a smooth and pleasant finish. Also, it has only been bottled for about two weeks so perhaps it will mellow over time. I felt the instructions provided even me, a beginner, with easy to follow steps which I did with little confusion.If I had any recommendation on improvements, it would be some additional clarity around de-gassing the C02 from the wine. The instructions say it can be done in 2 minutes, where as videos I’ve seen say it should take 30 minutes. In any event I went with the instructions so may not have fully degassed the wine, but not really sure on this point.
Fantastic wine, came out great, will definitely purchase again, highly recommended
I started my MVWR Pinot Noir a month ago, and I'm sad to say I only have 2 of 6 gallons left. Maybe I drink it a little young, but after 20 days it was clear and tasty. The only additives I used were yeast nutrient and bentonite. This succulent wine reminds me, flavor-wise, of wild cherries, a fruit I enjoy while hiking in late summer in upstate New York. Fortunately, I have a batch of Mezza Luna in process which I will bottle in a few weeks when it is 3 weeks young. Gallon jugs. About as complicated as brewing coffee. Making decent wine for $2.50/fifth. Without all the additives.
I made this wine earlier this year and left it in the carboy after raking for about 5 months. I bottled it and at at bottling it is very nearly ready to drink. Complex flavors while still a bit rough around the edges I know from past experience that in six months it will be good and at a year it will be wonderful. Highly recommended.
