    Strange question. I just filtered a peach wine. Ready to top off, but wife drank our last bottle of white wine this week. It doesn't need much. It's in a 1G carboy and needs half a cup or less. Anyone ever use rum or vodka to top off a wine? I know it will raise the ABV. Just curious.

    I would be concerned about conflicting flavors. I think some brandy would blend well!

    I topped mine off with a Peach Brandy. That actually added a bit more peach flavor.
