When having steak - rare to medium rare, naturally - only a red wine will do. And amongst my reds, it is really only elderberry that makes the cut. Elderberry is a substantial, full-bodied red which complements the meat. It is fruity without being sweet.
The steak came from a tree-surgeon, which is a bit random.
We spent the day doing very little - still recovering from the Christmas socialising. This is our first and last quiet weekend in January. I am gearing up for another whirl of entertainment.
