    In 2017, I bottled the Winexpert Selection Original Piesporter Style Wine Kit. This wine is very well liked by a few of my neighbors wives. Unfortunately, I only have 6 bottles left. Winexpert no longer has this kit listed on their website. Checking my local wine kit supplier, as well as every online retailer I've ever done business with, I couldn't find a Piesporter kit of similar quality.

    Does anyone know of a similar high end Piesporter kit that is still available.

    Thanks for replying to my query. I'll look around for a recipe to get the recommended proportion of elderflower to juice ratio.

    Wikipedia didn't say anything about the elderflowers; it only said: "A white, light body wine that ranges from dry to off-dry, it can be made from Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, or Elbling grapes." The elderflowers must be the secret ingredient that converts a common riesling into a piesporter.

    https://www.homebrewing.org/Vintners-Reserve-Piesporter_p_77.html this site had one listed. searching some more found that elderflower wine can be made with from 10 to 25 grams of dried elderflowers per gallon. I would start with the lower quantity in the primary once fermented do a taste test if low add another 10 grams in secondary for about a month.
