Basically if I was looking for a cheap alternative to a daily wine then this would be fine albeit lacking. The wife drinks 1 bottle red a night so perhaps I can persuade her to switch over at some stage. Definitely worth having as an emergency wine in the house. Cost of the kit was €65 so €2 euro a bottle ish.
Taste is nice - not as good as a purchased bottle of wine though but it has nice elements of fruit and alcohol in it. Need to figure out how to introduce a bit more "bite" into the wine.
If I were doing it again I would consider adding RGJ to it instead of Water.
So - perfectly drinkable, easy to make, but certainly not same sort of drink as purchased wine.
[Aware that the wine is basically only a month old so lets see what happens in 6 months - I will update then]
Might try a 10L white wine kit next just to go through all the variables.
