Indeed it was, John.  Beaverdale.  I did the 6 bottle kit a couple of times and was pleased with the result, so have since bought 2 lots of the 30 bottle version, of which I have made one, so far.  It's a pretty decent wine, IMHO, though I am also experimenting with other (non-kit) options.  Smiley

......  Beaverdale. ........


I've rapidly become a fan - tried cheaper kits ... unmanageable amounts of foam....!!

the B'dale red Barolo turned out well too
