Wow, only 2-3 months? Sorry I've never done a white. They don't require 2+ years or anything near that to reach their peak?On the Sav Blanc, the kit requires 6 weeks and suggests 2-3 months in bottle. I find it tastes pretty good after about a month, but gets better over time.
Once while speaking with a RJS CS person it was recommended to me that their whites (we might have been talking about the lower end whites) were best consumed within a year or so. Their reds would likely benefit from some additional aging.Wow, only 2-3 months? Sorry I've never done a white. They don't require 2+ years or anything near that to reach their peak?
Putterr....I am leaning in that direction myself and will follow your footsteps.I make 3 reds to 1 white and only make Ultra premium or limited edition kits. IMHO the extra spent on the higher end kits is worth every penny. never been disappointed
i have made many white kits over the years, from very cheap to the 18 L ones i do now. it's been a journey. I still tweak some of them with fruit zest. i have made a couple of the fruit wines but would rather have my fruit drinks made with rum or vodka.Putterr....I am leaning in that direction myself and will follow your footsteps.
Except I do have a huge amount fun tweaking these cheaper kits into a much better wine than they would have been. I don't tweak the big kits or do very small tweaks. I'm finding they drink good early and MUCH better with some age.
Not a white wine guy and all seem to disappoint me. But, everyone seems pleased with the Peach Apricot Chardonnay ...just a very pleasant low brow white wine.
