Default Fisher and Wieser Peach preserves as a wine base?

So, I was Costco today and was looking at some F&W peach preserves. The ingredient list only had peaches, sugar and one other thing that escapes me at the moment.

I wonder this would make a good base for some peach wine? I mean the peaches and sugar are already in there, right?

if it doesn't contain preservatives it will work for wine. I was actually eyeballing something similar the other day.

As I'm sure others will tell you, preserves are extreamly high in pectin, a substance that essentially will cloud your wine. You can use pectic enzyme to counteract that, but it was intended to clear the haze caused by pectins from fresh or frozen fruit, not preserves, which have a much higher concentration. If you dont mind a thick and cloudy wine, I'd say go for it. If you're at all concerned with looks, try to steer clear of preserves.
