Blackberry Wine - Third Bottle (B3), 15th September 2012
I took this bottle to York with me as the 'overflow' bottle should I run out of wine at the Local Authors' event at York Victorian Cemetery. It remained unopened there, and I thought I might get it home to drink at a later date. However, the white wine Pop had bought for the evening to go with the trout was horrid. Far worse than the stuff I normally produce. There was no other white in the house and real red doesn't sit well with Claire, so we opened this (and finished it too). It is a fine batch of blackberry wine, and I think even better than last year's - though lighter. I had the opportunity for a near-direct comparison, having had the last bottle of Blackberry 2010 earlier in the day.
