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.

Blackcurrant Wine - Second Bottle (2), 7th-8th September 2013

I opened this bottle after the first Music Club of the season. It is an event that marks the end of summer and always arrives too soon. There was some good music, though. The Bridgewaters are always a pleasure, but the evening's highlight was Dawn singing songs dedicated to joy and sorrow. It was only towards the end of the evening that I began to yearn for a glass of blackcurrant wine and a slice of chocolate beetroot cake.

The wine was its usual sharp, fruity self and is unmistakeably blackcurrant. We did not quite finish the bottle, leaving enough for a taster tonight, after trying small glasses of blackcurrant gin and blackcurrant vodka. The gin wins by an inch.
