I keep seeing carmanere and malbec as fresh juices and kits, but since I haven't tasted them yet, I don't want to spend money until I know if I like them.
Besides, at this time, I don't have room to do more than 1 or 2, at most, batches at a time.
You can't go wrong with any variety of Chilean juices, I've been making the reds for 4 years and have been happy with all of them. The Malbec and Carmenere are really exceptional. I do more buckets every year. I' done some good blends from these and have won ribbions with everyone I' ve entered into competion. The reds are way better than the red buckets from Cental California.God bless, Ed
Come on Steve theres lots to do here in Erie. Make wine, drink wine and write your name in the snow..LOL. Even Troy wouldn't dare try that one! I did not know we could get the juices from the produce supply houses until last week I heard about it. I was told about the one you just mentioned and also there is one down near Hermitage that is suppose to be real good. I don't remember the name though.
I have never tasted a Chilean wine before and was thinking about making some this spring when the juice becomes available. I bought a bottle of Malbec and one of Carmenere. I am going to taste tonight. Which would be best to start with?
This spring will be our 5th year making wine from chilean grapes.These grapes produce some of the best wine i have ever made.The grapes are hand picked to perfection.No leaf or spec of dirt on them.The Chilean people take alot of pride in there grapes.I recommend making it.These wines have produced gold and bronze.My favorite is the syrah.
