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.

Quince Wine - Second Bottle (5), 17th November 2012

Quince Wine was one of 'Must Open' bottles for the Wine Party, and it proved to be the most controversial of the evening. Duncan took one sip and declared 'Kettle Descaler', whereas both Gunnar and Julia raved about it. Gunnar awarded it 'Anro Prêît' (or possibly 'Anro Prt') which presumably means something in Estonian. It was only one of two bottles finished, even though it got the most 'worst wine served' votes and came sixth (out of seven) in the overall stakes. I overheard people talking about its perfume, and those who didn't like it added sugar water, agreeing this improved it. However, Richard opinioned that this only made it reach 'a bit non-descript'.

  1. 'Kettle Descaler' and 'a bit non-descript' are excellent names Ben. I christened a recent batch home brewed cider: 'Pond Water'.
