Greetings

This blog is a record of the wine that I make and drink. Each flavour made and each bottle drunk will appear here. You may come to the conclusion that, on the whole, I should be drinking less.

Elderflower - Bottle A2, 25th-27th June 2011

The adrenalin was up on Saturday night and we needed something to bring it down. Half a bottle of Crab Apple wine between us didn't quite pass muster, so I opened this bottle too and did not get to bed until after one - which is virtually unheard of.

We each had a glass on Sunday late afternoon in the garden, enjoying a rare genuinely hot day. The garden is looking fecund and I suspect the courgette plants are plotting to declare independent statehood shortly. As lunch had consisted of flat breads and lettuce, a glass of this and my 'tasting' glass of Bonfire wine had the desired effect, and we set off for our curry with Rachel and Duncan somewhat wibbly.

The last of this bottle was finished on Monday with that well known light summer meal to have on a warm day - sausages, mash and onion gravy. Cooking often makes me irritable, but Elderflower wine helped.
