    Mediocre
    Review by LFon 25/03/2013
    I made this kit almost 2 months ago now and it has only just got to a stage now where I'd consider it "drinkable". The good points are that it is nice and clear and it's OK to drink, no "off" flavours as such. If you bought a bottle for £4.99 at Tesco, you'd probably think it was OK, but nothing that would make you want to buy it again.

    The kit makes around 25 bottles (assuming you don't want to bottle sediment and are using standard 75cl bottles - the 30 bottles apparently refers to 70cl bottles), so works out at roughly £1.35 a bottle, so this is plenty cheap enough. Maybe I've been spoilt by the extract beers I've brewed from BrewUK, where the result has been BETTER than a lot of commercial brews, but I'll be skipping SG in future and maybe trying a bit more expensive brand. FWIW, I've been told by one or two more experienced wine makers that they rate the SG Gold version higher than the Platinum.

    Quick, easy, and very nice!
    Review by Mikeon 07/03/2013
    I have made 2 of these Merlot now, one for my wedding and one in preparation for my brother's wedding later this year. Everyone who has tasted the wine was surprised at the quality and flavour. This is a rich, full-bodied red, dry red that really does get better after ageing a month or so, but very drinkable from the off!

    Excellent wine!
    Review by Stickson 05/06/2012
    Very easy to make. Drinkable right from the minute you bottle. Becomes really good after 7 days. You cant go wrong with this wine, looking forward to many more bottles of this!

    Great value and very drinkable
    Review by MARTYon 25/07/2011
    Pretty straightforward to make but would recommend a thermometer to check the temperature before adding yeast. I made mine too hot and had to wait for it to cool. The fermentation was pretty violent as the instructions suggested it might be.Bubbled up through the air lock, so be warned.End result is a dryish deep coloured red with hint of blackcurrent. Could not really ask for more.
