Claire is recovering from a heavy cold and is struggling to taste things properly. This provided the ideal opportunity to have a bottle of Nasty Redcurrant. In fact the nastiness has disappeared and I declare this wine Quite Good. If you concentrate, there is still a hint of mustiness on the first sip, but otherwise it has a sharp, clear taste and the flavour is redeemed.
I have spent the day doing very little - writing an article for Wine Making Talk (which you can read if you click here) and reading The Witch of Exmoor by Margaret Drabble. A lazy Sunday can be a wonderful thing.
