Best advice is to put the lot in the compost!  Marrow wine can be thin tasting,  weak and if unlucky really odd tasting!   Having made many different  of wines from stuff at the plot I  would not bother with this one without some addition ingredients to add some taste.

If you do decide to proceed add loads of wine juice concentrate/raisins then add  sugar syrup gradually till it gets to the desired hg reading.
