My cherry wine has a bitter/tart taste. Is there any way to remove this?
Peter Daellenbach • Roscommon, Mich. asks,
I have made 2.5-gallon batches of pin cherry wine. Without a recipe to go by, I used my old standby: chockcherry recipe of 20 plus years. It makes excellent wine with a little almond flavor. The recipe calls for crushing/grinding the berries using a three-point grinder. The wine has a bitter/tart taste. Is there any way to remove this, short of pouring it down the drain?
