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.

Rhubarb Wine - First Bottle (B5), 1st-2nd April 2015

What a splendid colour. This wine has that classic bronze pink of my very best rhubarb. The taste matches the tint. I have always liked rhubarb wine and this vintage does not disappoint. It has a full, dry flavour with a refreshing sharpness to it.

Claire opened the bottle on Wednesday, shortly before I went to a WYSO committee meeting - I had half a glass before I set off, and a fuller glass on my return. We finished the bottle tonight - Maundy Thursday - while discussing our impending move. The chain of buyers is complete, which means it is really going to happen. Probably. Gulp.
