    I guess I need more information. I assume the wine has competed fermentation and is clear, also you have filtered it. you want to add fruit to accomplish what task? have you added sorbate and K-meta?

    Is this fruit into a grape based wine ? As above - have you undergone primary. And when you say filtered do you mean you have strained our the grape skins after soaking.

    This is a kit wine, and yes everything had been done. Fruit additive was just overlooked. Rushing. Not paying enough attention. Looking at Wrong paperwork. A variety of mistakes unfortunately

    Yes. This is a wine based fruit wine, and has been filtered and actually I bottled it! Tested alcohol content. Then tasted wine and realized I made the mistake! What an error!! .

    is this a Island Mist or similar wine? since it is bottled and sorbate added your first step is to open all the bottles and return to carboy then add fruit pack. at best the fruit flavor may be added over time. I am inclined to suggest calling the kit supplier and asking there opinion. it may be a waste of time.
