    Peach wine not clearing 4 months old

    Yes Julie I tried it this morning. it is smooth with a mild peach taste. The alcohol content is to high I'm disappointed to say as it overshadows the peach flavor. but it has no off taste and fair mouth feel. not great but an ok wine. It just will not clear.
