Strawberries are actually weak in colour as can be seen when fermenting but you could add some preservative free food colouring and natural flavouring to enhance it. I've tried.
I’ve decided on a strawberry for next month so I’m gonna see what I can do 👌🏻

Rhubarb is an amazing base for wine. It has good body and will take up the flavours of anything you mix with it without adding much of its own. If you put a couple of rhubarb crowns in your garden this year, it'll need a couple of years before you can crop it. But it's worth it.

Never tried but I’m curious as to see what happens without ‘cheating’

I made some tinned strawberry wine a few months ago that tasted quite a lot like alcoholic Calpol.

Dry though, can’t stand sweet wine.

Maybe that would’ve been better if I’d blended it with rhubarb? Hmmm

I can say though that rhubarb and gooseberry are most definitely good friends.
