More Wine!

The Riesling's done.


I'd predicted more than a few weeks ago that'd take a few weeks so at least I'm a man of my word.

Yep, it's another kit, and since it's not a blend, it took just a little longer for the fermentation and clarification processes to occur. Still, it's perfectly drinkable right at bottling though you can see it's still a might bit cloudy - some of that opaqueness is condensation on the glass but the wine's not crystal clear by any measure. Things should settle down a bit as time goes on. A tad sweet for my taste but it's a Riesling so what'd I expect? It'll be a good, all-around, inoffensive white.

That means now I have four cases of wine stashed around the house. Goodness. Looks like I'll need a wine cellar next. But this means since I have plenty - and it just wouldn't do to have six cases of wine around the house, would it? - this'll be the end of the wine-making for a while. I'd like to do a deep, dark red next time so I'll be on the lookout for a good kit to do just that.

  1. Hey I just followed that link back and realized that you recommended a movie-"Bottle Shock". No I haven't seen it. But I'll put it on the Netflix queue and promise to get to it right after Seasons 2 and 3 of "Dexter".
