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.

Pineapple Wine - Fifth Bottle (5), 3rd-4th June 2015

I am currently irritated and frustrated. Our house purchase drags on and the latest crisis concerns insurance. When we decided to buy the house we are buying, we got a structural survey which said "This house is fine". Santander instructed a valuer who said "There is some cracking. The house must be falling down". And of course, the insurers believe the valuer (a glorified salesman) rather than the structural engineer. I reached for the gin before the pineapple wine and both have helped. The wine is too sweet and a little cloying, but is otherwise drinkable.
