When you back sweeten, don't use sugar, use some cran-concentrate. That'll reinforce the flavor and ad the sweetness.

Sure. I mean let it sit out and come to room temperature first, but yeah. Or splash another flavor. I sometimes splash cran-concentrate into my cider when I back sweeten.

Now this sounds interesting...first wine I'll be trying; been doing mead up to now so not a newbie to the process but it's still fun to try something new. White grape/raspberry, anyone? I might even try to do this sparkling...we'll see how she goes. Thanks for the recipe, brazedowl!

I wrote this way back before I started measuring gravity and just was whipping together sweet tasting, strong, cheap, wines I'll check the gravity the next time I run this recipe for sure and post it.
