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.

Quince Wine - Third Bottle (6), 2nd-5th February 2013

Claire described this bottle, "Like a lady of negotiable virtue and affection. Tart." It is definitely one that needs a hefty dose of sugar solution before drinking. Once applied, quince wine is actually rather good. There is a pleasant floral taste, though clarity leaves much to be desired.

The bottle was opened after an orchestral evening at Music Club. These evenings are generally the lowlight of the season and Saturday was no exception. We played Schubert's Tragic Symphony which, under the circumstances, was aptly named, and both audience and orchestra winced through the performance.

  2. That is very kind of you, Steve, but I suspect that my irreligiosity (if that is a word) would simply annoy.
