I have 25 bottles of Kenridge classic "cabernet sauvignon" that I bottled in January -- I made a mistake of adding a bit to much of sodium metabisulphite before bottling. When I sampled a bottle just after bottling it had a real strong sulphur nose to it -- now it has mellowed a bit and has a slight burnt match/sulphur nose to it which is not nice -- the thing is it tastes really really good.
Does anyone know if this sulphur nose will ever disappear??
I was thinking of emptying all 25 bottles back into a carboy and somehow treating it before rebottling.
It'll slowly disapate over a year or two. While you wait, you can always just decant the wine about an hour or two before serving. That will help, and you should lose any of the sulfur nose.
I was gonna suggest the same...My hard lemonade( I know its not wine) I had to start yeast three different times to get it to work.. It tastes really good but has a NASTY smell from the yeast even though I cleared it nicely.. The longer it sets in the glass the less the smell seems to be.
