Hello, I am bottling some 2014 1st run blueberry wine and there is an odor that makes me not want to taste it. But of course I did and its alright. My question is there a way to eliminate or change the smell? I tried to blend a sweet 3rd run blueberry with the 1st (Dry) and it still has that odor any suggestions? Thanks!

sounds like H2S. Pour about a third of a glass and put a penny in it. Swirl it around for a few minutes and see if the oder goes away.

Welcome to the forum. Might try drawing a glass and let it sit open for a couple of hours or so. If one of our two suggestions helps, come back and tell us about it. We can probably help you with your problem. Arne.

Another option is Redulees, if your issue is H2S.
