I've never made wine from grapes...only kits. Thinking about the jammy skins pack in Eclipse kits, does that resemble how crushed grapes look? What is the gooey stuff in with the skins? Does anybody know?

Judging by how much the skin pack raises the SG, i would say it is a sugar syrup addition

I don't know what the process is, but it almost seems as though the skins (and the liquid in/around them) are 'cooked down' and reduced, similar to the juice.
