Blackcurrant wine at its best is a fabulous flavour, and this bottle did not disappoint. It has a sharp fruit taste and is sophisticated, alcoholic Ribena.
I opened a blackcurrant because I have just located a new source. The new house's back garden has several bushes laden with them and I spent a happy half hour picking the ripest. There are also raspberry canes. Buying a new house may be an expensive way to acquire soft fruit but I'm not complaining.
The wine nearly accompanied a searingly hot chicken chilli cooked by Claire, but we had pretty much finished the bottle by the time we started eating.
