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.
