Superior Seven wine kits

Post by soupdragon » Thu Feb 18, 2021 4:16 pm

Hi all

Has anyone tried the above mentioned kits? They're from Spitting Feathers homebrew, I presume they're the retailers own brand? They include oak, elderberries or elderflower depending on which variety of kit it is. Doesn't say how much grape concentrate/compound there is to the kits but it says no extra sugar is required. I'd imaging they'd have the usual 5 ish litres/7 kg though.
Any info on how these turn out would be great

Cheers. Tom

Couldn't find much out about these. Saw a few pictures on Google and the boxes are the same size as Cellar 7, one pic showed a white wine weighing 7kg.
Had an itchy mouse finger all day so have bought some to try. Got a few other kits to do before I'll get to these but I'll report back once I start one

Cheers. Tom

Don't know about these, but I have been getting great results with the premium ranges from Beaverdale. Just bottled a rose and it tastes really good.

Got a Malbec going. It's only had a week or so fermenting so way early to comment. Smells rather pleasant though

Just stabilized/degassed and fined it. Give it a couple of weeks and I'll bag it up and have a cheeky snifter 🍷

Cheers Tom

Just bagged this and had a small sample.
A bit acidic, some fruit, touch of oak and decent colour. Slightly thin in the mouth but that's to be expected with the £30-35 kits.
To be fair, that could describe a lot of kits when they've just been bottled.
I've 10 litres of California Connoisseur Valroza followed by 20 litres of Beaverdale Nebbiolo before I get to this but may dip into it in a month or two.
So it's not bad at all really, for my dodgy palate anyway

Cheers Tom
