Rhubarb wine is a dependable if not particularly interesting bottle. I enjoy its fizz and pinkness, though both are subtle, and otherwise it is a dry white, which is no bad thing.
My need for a glass on Thursday was pronounced. I had just made that mackerel, onion and olive dish from The River Cottage Year and I'm not that comfortable with cooking fish. There was also a timing issue - making sure the potatoes, beans and cous-cous with salted lemons were all ready together - which I always find difficult. But rhubarb wine helped - as I think it would with many of life's problems.
