Rhubarb Wine - First Bottle (A5), 10th May 2013
The first bottle of Rhubarb 2012 coincided with our last evening of staying in Flaxley, Gloucestershire. It has been an alcoholic and relaxing week involving lots of walking, eating and drinking. This bottle proved to be the most popular of the six I brought, which was a pleasant surprise. It is just as dry and fizzy as previous versions and there is the subtlest of pink blushes to it (though not as pronounced as in earlier years). Someone round the table compared it to a Cava and Ann poured herself a second glass. High praise indeed.
