5.0 out of 5 stars Super simple quality wine kit 30 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
If you like merlot and want a bottle which tastes like it cost £5 or £6 but which actually cost about £1 a bottle then this kit is for you.
Even a novice can't go wrong with this kit everything you need to do is clearly explained and every thing you need to make the wine is in the kit (except 4Kg of sugar which you will need).
Your also going to need a 5gal fermenting vessel and some bottles but that applies to any wine making.
Once you have made this you will be hooked and another batch will soon follow.
It makes 30 bottles but count on about 25 or 26 because some will be lost syphoning off etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't look or taste like any Merlot I've ever had 24 April 2012
Verified Purchase
I'm not that pleased with this kit; I have brewed more expensive kits and produced a decent wine. I decided to experiment with the cheaper end of the market to see if it is really necessary to pay extra for better quality kits.

After a quick brew I racked the wine off the lees and cleared. All seemed well. However, once cleared I poured a sample from my wine thief into a glass to examine the product. It was like looking at a fairly weak glass of Ribena!! very little flavour (what flavour there was was fairly cheap and unpleasant) and an unpleasant texture which I can only guess comes from the conditioning pack of syrupy liquid, probably containing glycerol. I should point out that I followed the instructions to the letter (I am by no means inexperienced at wine kit brewing, and they are usually foolproof so I'm sure the poor quality wasn't due to an error of mine).

This wine has been bottled but to be honest I think I'll just keep it until the California Connoisseur Cabernet Sauvignon I bought today is ready and pour them out so I don't have to sterilize them again :-). Might keep 6 of them for a year or two just to see but I'm not confident.

For what it's worth, my advice is: If you're considering a cheaper kit, don't do it. Even at £50 for a kit, you're still only paying ~£1.66 a bottle! it's false economy if you start scrimping on your grape juice.

I have to agree with the other reviewer - it came out looking like dilute Ribena. The taste was OK for me though, although nothing like a Merlot it was OK, and is certainly strong enough. Next time I'm going to try something more expensive...

Even just after bottling this wine- I thought it was great. If I can keep it long enough to further mature - it will be even better. Can't go wrong- fully recommend it!!
