I have not tried mellon wine myself. I have been told some things about
mellon wine by a guy at the supply store where I pick up much of my chemicals.
He said that watermellon wine taste good, but the nose was really bad. He
said it was so bad you had to hold your nose to drink it. I am not telling
you not to make it, I don't have a recipe to make it, but I don't know if you
would like it once you have it bottled.
If you want to try a fruit wine, I would suggest strawberry, peach, raspberry
or rhubarb (I like the wines in that order).
If I remember right, aren't you in the 'out of season' time there? It might
be a little hard to get the fruits.
