I've been making wine for years now from the late 60's I have made Elderberry in every decade since and still this stuff varies in taste dependent on loads of things : Age of berries , stalk removal, sweetness of berries, types of yeast fermented with, other fruit added, and i could go on and on and sometimes it 's of poor quality, I've blended it with other wines with varying success's
I'm a big Fan of adding a banana and a few sultanas as others have said and these days always add Pectolase to help clear and get rid of that haze. sometimes I kept it a bit to long and ended up chucking it into my Air still and distill it but the still takes a bit of cleaning afterwards all in all it never gets wasted

Not even into last week of July yet and Elderberries here are ripening already.
Early flowering and warm weather have helped.
