So a little background first...
Purchased the following:
Some other supplies from a local home brew store. Followed the instructions in each kit pretty much to the letter.
Since I've never made wine I'm hoping this is natural and part of the process.
With the Cab after primary fermentation there seemed to be a very distinct funky taste (possibly sour or something very close). We added all the ingredients, additives and such within a day or so of hitting all SG marks. At bottling the funk (not sure on what else to call it) was still there just not as bad. We tested it this past weekend, two weeks being in the bottle and there still seems to be a little something but not as much. It seems to be fading away. Didn't filter/rack this batch enough as each bottle has a little sediment now that they are on their sides...is this all normal?
Same thing seems to be happening to the Malbec as well. This time ran the Malbec through a homemade filter system to remove sediment but that same funky taste is there.
With both batches I wouldn't say it's a sulphury taste, really more of a sour taste. Primary and secondary fermentation process on both finished 100% before we moved/racked them. No strange forming or film on anything.
Please tell me that I am being overly concerned LOL.
Notes for batch two (Malbec) attached.
