I'm interested in making my own wine. I've been researching the process and equipment a lot and one thing i'm starting to notice is that most dry wines in particular are recommended to be aged 2 or 3 years. I'm not a fan of sweet wine so i definitely want to do dry, but i don't have the patience to wait 2+ years to drink the first wine i make.
What are your suggestions for dry wines that still taste pretty good immediately after bottling?
If it changes anything, i plan on starting from a kit.
Thanks!

I find the lower end kits (10liter and 12 liter kits) make better young drinkers. Dragons blood is another early inexpensive drinker of you wanna try wine without a kit.

For me, a premium red wine kit will outshine a low end red wine kit at any stage of aging. I recommend you buy the best kit you can afford in a variety you like.

Gewürztraminer is a good dry white wine that will be nice-drinking early. It has so much flavor to offer you don't need to wait for them all to develop.

Also, all dry whites have tasted very good right away to me.

Ted, I am coming around to your way of thinking on the higher end kits.

However, I like the cheap kits to play with and after the second bottle, no one seems to notice the difference:h allows my big reds to keep sitting longer.
