On The House Chardonnay – 30 Bottle Wine Kit

On The House Chardonnay - 30 BottleChardonnay is a green-skinned grape used in the production of white wine. The variety originated in the Burgundy wine region of eastern France but is now grown wherever wine is produced, from England to New Zealand. The Chardonnay grape itself is very neutral and is vinified in many different styles, from the lean, crisply mineral wines of Chablis, France, to New World Wines with oak, and tropical fruit flavours. The flavours become more citrus, peach, and melon, while in very warm locations, more fig and tropical fruit notes such as banana and mango come out.

Chardonnay is arguably the most famous and successful of all white wine grapes and also one of the most widely planted.

On The House Wine Kits

On The House is a range of premium quality craft winemaking kits that requires no added sugar (all of the sugar content is contained within the grape juice). These kits are easy to make and even easier to enjoy. Everything you need to make this wine is included with the kit (except water). The wine can be drunk young, but unlike some 3-week wine kits, it will continue to mature if you are patient. This kit will produce around 30 bottles (5 gallon – 22.5 litres) of delicious wine. Simple and straightforward, choose your favourite red, white or blush style and be proud of these easy-drinking everyday house wines.
