I started making wine about 3.5 years ago with a couple kits and a few batches of SP/dragon’s blood, and after only about half a dozen batches took a bit of a hiatus (almost 3 years!)... I keep my carboys in an empty coat closet, and had more or less neglected a double batch of WE port that was still in a 6 gal carboy. After resolving to get back into the hobby this past weekend I racked it into a 5 gal (plus a couple of swing-tops for tasting/testing), and there was a TON of lees left in the original, I can’t even remember if I racked it after fining. The airlock was completely dry and probably had been for over 2 years i’m guessing, but in a glass the wine was completely clear, still had legs and smelled of high alcohol content as it should. My wife and I both tasted it, (tasted fine...) and there were no other anomalies like floaties or residue or off-tastes or smells. So long story short, am I crazy to think that a wine sitting on gross lees with a dry airlock with no racking for over 3 years is perfectly fine and drinkable?? Thanks, and glad to be reviving the hobby.
