Is it possible one was a blush but was mislabeled? I've never made a blush so I'm not sure if it starts out read.
The juice was pretty cloudy when I got it (as it was last year) and I killed the wild yeast, added a nutrient and a good wine yeast.
If you didn't have any grape skins, the wine should be white. It's the color of the skins and flesh that makes the color of the wine. Usually, a blush is fermented on the skins briefly, while a white is pressed juice only. Pinot gris can be a blush color, though.
