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.

Blackcurrant Wine - Second Bottle (A3), 21st July 2018

Brigitta was over for a meal of 'Biochemist's Lamb' and I was about to open my penultimate bottle of Fig. I had got as far as piercing the cork with a corkscrew when I asked Brigitta if she liked figs.
"They're not my favourite."
"How about blackcurrants?"
"Oh, I love those."
So, a bottle of blackcurrant it was and Brigitta (quite correctly) thought it was marvellous. Certainly blackcurrant wine is very more-ish. It is essentially alcoholic pop. Fig would have been better with lamb, but I'm happy to save that for another day.
