I think Northern Brewer is a great company and enjoy their products. Now, having said that...I bought this kit and the yeast did not activate (that came with the kit). A long story short, I did get a $10 coupon for future purchases. Not to be difficult, I would have preferred to have been sent a new wine kit of a different wine. I will still shop at Northern Brewer again, but this kit is not a high volume mover and I do question the age of this kit, that a dry yeast would not work...
2 week fermentation, 2 week clarification, OG 1.072, FG 0.998 so a bit low on alcohol in the end (~10%). Fermented with least oxygen exposure possible. At bottling is very clear, very light color, has a strong minerality with a good deal of late acidity. Bit low on the floral characteristics you'd expect with a Gewurz, but when served rather cold is a strong wine. Needs another 2 months in bottle before it shines I'm guessing, but completely drinkable right away.
This wine was a favorite of everyone who tried it.
