Craft Range Sessions 14 Day Wine Kit With Wood Chip Mix Chardonnay

Includes a complex wood chip mix which accelerates the aging process producing a great wine in as little as 14 days. We've been working with customers and manufacturers for a year to perfect this wine kit.

This kit is modelled on the Chardonnay grape, and will create a fine wine of this style. After the 14 days it takes to make it, it will have already transformed into a perfectly balanced wine with the appropriate smokey character and aroma. It will further improve with age in the bottle.

All the ingredients you need are included. Just add water.
