It's one of those wines you hear about and have to make!

We've had quite a few people email us and tell us they like this recipe! So there you go!

1Tablespoon coffee
1kg Sugar
250 ml grape concentrate
1 tsp pectolase
1 tsp acid blend or citric acid

Use Nescafe or a similar brand, make the coffee in  2 pints of water and add the sugar
When cool to room temperature add the rest of ingredients 
Put into a clean demi john. Top up to shoulders of demi john with  cold water. Add an airlock and leave to ferment out. This may take a few days or a couple of weeks depending on the temperature.
When the bubbles stop coming through the airlock, or slow down to about one every 2 minutes test the wine.
Either use a hydrometer or taste it. If it's too sweet leave it longer.
If it's dry(sour taste) or just right,syphon off into a clean demi john.
Add 1 campden tablet and potassium sorbate.
Leave to clear.
When clear, syphon into a clean demi john or bottle.
If it's too dry you can sweeten with sugar but keep a check that it doesn't start fermenting again. Leave it a couple of weeks then add a campden before bottling.
This wine is best a bit sweet--I hated it, but then I don't like coffee sweets either.
