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.

Gooseberry & Elderflower Wine - Ninth Bottle (A1), 4th-6th March 2015

The first couple of glasses from this bottle, whilst the wine was still a clear golden colour, were absolutely fine. The flavour was maybe a little full-on, but it was entirely acceptable. As the bottle progressed, however, the wine became murky and brown, and the final glass after Book Group on Friday night cause a headache on Saturday morning.

Book Group was lots of fun. We were discussing The Minaturist by Jessie Burton and about half of us liked it. I was in the other half. The evening ended with me inadvertently being extremely insulting to Helen. She tells a great story, and last night it was about how her bank card was frozen for Unusual Activity, which mostly consisted of her buying a tea cake and Hello magazine at Leicester Forest East. I suggested that she contact You and Yours as they often run stories on "slightly interesting ancecdotes". Oops.
