I made a 5 gallon batch of blueberry wine late last year.
Arround Christmas, I filled a few bottles. There is still 3+ gallons in the glass carboy.
Last night, I noticed the water/starsan in the airlock was gone. Could have been gone for months. I have not tasted it yet.
Is the wine likely ruined? Stale? something else?
I guess I should taste it, but just wondering what has transpired.

Read alot of stories about this. Odds are in your favor that it's not a problem.

Only one way to find out.

You have likely introduced a bit of oxygen. That really isn't a big deal. I have never made blueberry wine, but so long as you didn't catch a bug (just taste it) and it tastes reasonably good, you're good to go. Just give it a taste test, and forget that you forgot.
