Tried this one with a friend, he had made it in 2019. It was so good i decided to make it as well. It is in the final stags of clearing getting ready to bottle Jan 3. Hope it is as good as my friends.
The wine is in process so I cannot respond to the quality of the product. I can say that the grape bladder fell out of the bottom of the box when I lifted it out of the exterior shipping box. The product box was wine stained at the bottom. Worst of all, however, the product box lacked a hole to support the bladder when the juice is poured into the primary fermenter. I HOPE the juice was not contaminated as part of it hit the cardboard and my hands. Note: I have been buying wine kits for over a decade, so I have a pretty good idea of what is satisfactory. On the brighter side, Northern Brewer came through like a champ in terms of getting it to me on time.
This kit gets better with age. I am pouring my early 2019 bottles and it is comparable to $40 dollar a bottle Italian big reds! Well worth the patience to let it age!
