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.

Elderflower Wine - Ninth Bottle (B1), 6th May 2014

Rachel promised us a gentle six mile walk around Derwent Water. She lied. Instead we got a ten mile hike with plenty of climb and descent. This is after a day of hard walking when my knees very nearly packed up entirely. Still, having done another long walk means we can reward ourselves with alcohol.

One of tonight's bottles was this elderflower, and everyone thought it was a good bottle. It is semi-sweet, floral and refreshing. We drank it with a dish of fish and tomato sauce (not ketchup!) prepared by Nick, which was delicious.

So far this holiday I have yet to open an unpopular bottle of wine. This hit rate cannot last.
