Elderberry Wine - 14th Bottle (C5), 19th-20th July 2012
Other than a glass snaffled by Claire on Thursday whilst I was in Ilkley playing quintets, this was an archetypal Friday night bottle. It has been a busy week, which means having a lazy Friday night, eating take-out curry and watching Midsomer Murders on DVD is an absolute pleasure. The elderberry wine merely added to this, and is a good flavour for curry:its sweet, metallic flavour holds its own against the richness and spiceness of Indian food. I am now, of course, sleepy and full. Perhaps the large glass of port was a mistake.
