Default Nectarine Wine

I am trying my hand at some nectarine wine as I was in Asda the other night and as luck would have it they were marking down a load of fruit. I ended up with 12kg of nectarines for �£0.48. Nice

10kg nectarines (stoned and cored)
5kg sugar
500ml strong tea
17ltr water
Pectic
Yeast nutrient

The aim is for 23ltr of drinkable. I have just prepared the must tonight and am waiting for the fruit to break down a bit before adding the yeast.

I'm not sure if I will enjoy this one but for the price I can chalk this up to experience.

Sounds interesting sir, keep is posted !

I haven't branched out into making wine with real actual fruit so far but tempted by the stories of cheap fruit 😀

A bargin! 48p for 12kg, should be nice as they would I expect they were ripe and soft. Similar to peach wine, can be nice.

Update.

I left the must for 24 hours and some of the fruit had broken down so added the yeast.

Fermentation has been explosive rather than vigorous.

I have been stirring daily as the fruit is breaking down well but creating a fairly solid layer at the top of the FV.

I should have mentioned I have only added 11.5ltr of the 17ltr of water initially due to space in the FV. I intend to top up when the fruit is removed in about a week.

I tasted tonight and so far it's quite nice.

Update.

Fermentation has calmed down.

There is a very strong taste (and smell) of alcohol. I am now thinking the volume of sugar is too much for this wine to produce a balanced taste.

I am considering stopping the fermentation early which should have the added benefit of retaining some of the sweetness.

Does anyone have experience of making peach or nectarine wine?
