Weird timing! I've just been given a pound and a half of fresh ginger root for free on Saturday! It looks good for a Medium/dry White however I'm personally not keen on big banana flavours - either in beer (Wells Banana Bread) or wine (My teenage memories of Spanish Liqueurs).
The excellent as a "hot toddy" almost sells it to me though.....

Don't fret about the banana taste ,as with most wines the finnish'd wine tastes nothing like the ingredients used(except in this case ginger is the flaver your after) the banana's are add'd to give extra body to the finnish'd wine/trust me you wont know is in there.(sorry i just had to slip it in there)

Wow new smily faces, but why a bannana

You can also make a bannana wine to blend with other wines that need body Im about to make 2 or 3 gallons so I can blend with my Pumpkin wine, and Im going to use the wild yeast cake from the pumpkin wine.
