The rewards and frustrations of home winemaking

Starting Yakima Synergy Cellar Craft Reserve

This is my first Cellar Craft kit.  I’m looking forward to this one for several reasons.  I’ve read a lot of good things about Cellar Craft on winepress.us.  Also, the description of this white blend sounds beyond yummy;  it’s a blend of Marsanne and Roussanne from Yakima valley in Washington state, two lovely rhone whites.  There is no oak in this kit, and they suggest it will make a nice alternative to an unoaked chardonnay.  I have had both Marsanne and roussanne before, and thought they were amazing.  The difficult part will be holding on to this wine – they say that it will show best after a year’s aging.  I’ll try, we’ll see what happens!
