It looks beautiful. What kind of yeast did you use to ferment? I'm guessing a wine yeast. Is the fermentation time and aging like that of wine or more like mead?

I started the batch back in April, using Côte des Blancs yeast. The wine was probably ready to bottle back in mid-June, but I didn't get around to it until recently. It doesn't seem to require a ton of aging, but I'm not going to open another bottle until later this fall. I'm going to use Montrachet for the next batch and compare the results.

I bought some light and some amber agave nectar at Whole Foods today. They both taste great. They are not nearly as strong tasting as honey, which I usually find too strongly flavored and intensely sweet. The agave nectar is mild by comparison. Good stuff.
