    Superb

    Third time making this kit and it has always produced excellent results. It's acceptable to drink when bottled but one month after bottling it is suitably matured and I am happy to serve to guests and give as gifts. Wonderful Sauvignon Blanc that stands up to much more expensive kits (almost double the price of this one).

    Good while young

    Review by on

    I've made this kit twice now; the first time I made the mistake of bulk-ageing it for too long. At day 0 it was rough around the edges, at 1 month a bit astringent, 3 months it was a lovely dry Sauvignon Blanc, at 6 months it was losing it a bit, and at 12 months it was like drinking flat American lager. If you're bulk ageing, would recommend bottling after 2-3 months, as it doesn't age well for much longer.
    For my second batch, I was in a bit of a hurry brewing for my wedding, and my fiance likes a sweeter wine, so I used a Gervin white wine yeast (couldn't find a specific culture like the Cab Sauv culture I used for my moderately successful red) and when it had fermented to dryness, back-sweetened it with a tiny amount (~400ml) of white grape concentrate (enough to put the s.g. from 0.98-1.00), and even very young (ferment finished one month ago), it is fairly smooth (very mildly astringent) with a lovely citrus flavour, more like a Marlborough Riesling than a Sauv Blanc. I doubt it will age well with this method, but it makes it very drinkable from being quite young.
    My only complaint would be that my S.G. calculations would put this at nearly 15% A.B.V. which is a bit strong for a white, though it doesn't taste too thin; I followed the instructions to the letter.
