I was able to make a direct taste comparison with 2015's elderberry while drinking this wine. 2015's batch was being bottled which meant a spare glass or two for quality control. The younger version is better, which is not what I expected at all. A little sweeter, missing a faint bitterness. This wine, though, is still good. It was a lovely evening, spending time in the kitchen with Claire, just chatting about nothing in particular.
Earlier in the day we watched cyclists whizz past as part of Leeds Triathlon, including Mary - wearing green and waving.
