Food for thought regarding no available grapes. Frozen must is the same as buying fresh grapes. Not sure about France but I know Spain sells and ships frozen must all over. And I believe Italy does as wellHi Boatboy , that’s my plan just need to source a barrel, I’ve seen some vastly different prices from £100 to £200 without shipping for a 20 litre barrel , hard to establish quality of each item as it’s a niche product, UK forums mostly beer oriented so little advice to be had. Thanks
Hi thanks for your reply, Do you rack to barrel after clearing or rack again, and do you leave wine in carboy long before moving to oak barrel, thanks just at planning stage and taking advice, thanks WillHi Will,
I do the RJS EnPrimeur kits with skins and use an 19L oak barrel. They spend 6 months in the barrel and generally age for 2 years total before drinking. I am sure that grapes or frozen must would be better but I feel the wine from these kits are very good and the real issue will be finding the variety that you enjoy.
Okay - I want one. And the price is unbeatable (either $180 or $190, right?)They are all medium toast.
