Might have to investigate.
I've had Munton's kits before and you don't have to add sugar them. They taste ok although they do have a slight twang to the taste (not sugary) Nothing that age can't sort out.

Do not dump it.... just make a new batch and in 7 days when the new batch reaches .994 stabilize it and blend it with the sweet wine... you'll have 10 gallons of yummy wine before new years ... wineries almost (or should i say Never) never throw out a batch they just blend it
