The Winexpert peach Ice wine is awesome but is a limited edition. If you can find 1 of those I would implore you to buy 1 of those. All of the Ice wine kits make 3 gallons so you will need a 3 gallon carboy to do these kits. I also did a RJS Cru Select White Ice wine and it too is awesome but this one will take 6 months minimum to come around as it was actually nasty at first when I bottled mine and I wasnt happy at all so just shelved them in my wine room and forgot about them for around 8 months. Then while I was putting some more wines away 1 day I decided to try one and was amazed at the progress this wine has made. At 1 year old this wine was worthy of competition IMO!
A friend of mine asked me about making ice wine and also made me an offer I cant refuse. He said he would buy the kit and 3 gallon carboy needed to make it (I wonder if I can get him to spring for the bottles too) for him this spring. He saw a kit WE Riesling ice Wine for about $80. I am really thinking about splitting the cost because I am thinking I would rather go with the RJS Vidal Ice Wine which is quite a bit more expensive. Has anyone tried this? I made a Vidal from juice I got at walkers and it was great.
The Vidal Ice wine kit makes superb Ice Style dessert wine. This Nectar is full of peach and tropical fruit with a balanced, honey-like sweetness. Oak 0/Body 5+/Sweetness 5++. This is a RJ Spagnols Award winning wine!
Each kit makes 12 liters (3 gallons), 28-30 375ml bottles or 13-15 750ml bottles wine. 109.00
