Greetings

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.

Crab Apple & Blackcurrant Wine - Fourth Bottle (1), 14th April 2013

It has been an age since we had a Sunday roast. Tonight this was rectified. However, the chicken took rather longer than planned, meaning that Claire and I had polished off two thirds of this bottle, plus a hefty gin & tonic, before we started to eat. I find that drinking on an empty stomach is more effective.

The meal was excellent, though, and plentiful, and crab apple & blackcurrant is a terrific bottle of wine. Fruity and light, with a sharp bite to it. The Sunday surrounding it has been a relaxing weekend type of day, full of visits to the garden centre, reading, snoozing and catching up on Doctor Who. What more could one want of a day of rest?
