Default Advice on proportions in recipe

I am about to make a fruit wine which will be an attempt to make something close to red grape wine, taste-wise. I have the following fruits and berries at hand, but am no sure how much of each to use for a 15 liter batch:
4,5 liters of freshly pressed apple juice (I'm about to make more). It is meant to be the base of the wine
4,5 kg of aronia berries (chokeberries)
2 kg of redcurrant
1 kg of blackcurrant
1 kg of rosehips
1 kg of elderberries
Sugar for a final ABV of about 12 %

I am not sure I will use the blackcurrant, as iy has a tendency to overpower other flavours. I would be happay for any suggestions or advice!
