I made some years ago, about early 90s (5 gal). It has an after taste that i didn't care for. ... BUT after a year, the taste went away and was a pleasant dry white wine. i have access to several 'jelly' palms but haven't made any more since. Best i remember, the berries contain a lot of sugar and i didn't have to add much, if any, additional sugar. ... I use a hydrometer and add sugar until I get a 14% content. This is usually about 10lb to 5 gal of 50/50 grape juice & water. Thus my wines are slightly dry.
