Most of the wine being made by the members of this website (according to what I've read) is frozen fruit, or frozen concentrate wine.
I'm looking for a listing that says: This yeast inparts spicy notes -or- This yeast lets the fruit aroma shine -or- This yeast offers barnyard aroma, but does not strip any color during fermentation. You know... that kind of thing
