Gooseberry wine goes badly with galoptious chocolate mousse, but is otherwise a splendid bottle.
We had an unexpected invite to share a Sunday roast with Ros, John and Alex, collecting Julia in a taxi on the way. I wanted to take one of my good wines, so chose this, unsure what the roast would be. It turned out to be lamb, so I drank real red for that. However, there were another three courses, and gooseberry wine accompanies both cheese and Eve's pudding (which I had never heard of before) rather well. It was a lovely way to spend a Sunday night.
