    Wineworks superior Chardonnay

    Made this short to 22ltrs. As pre normal instructions are simple and easy to read. finished gravity wasn’t far off what should be- although I’m getting feedback it’s stronger than was expected. Only bottled 3 weeks ago but have to say this has went down a treat with the hot weather. Full of...
