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.

Elderberry Wine - Fourth Bottle (B2), 20th-21st July 2018

This wine is starting to mature into a rather decent bottle of red. It probably needs another year or so to hit its peak, but patience has never been a virtue for which I am renowned. We drank most the bottle on Friday to Toad in the Hole and Gravy - winter food to celebrate the fact it rained and was generally grey. The 45 minutes' drizzle coincided with Claire sitting outside marshalling traffic whilst our street was closed. She needed something to warm her up and the food and wine performed admirably.
