I left this bottle in the fridge at our holiday cottage in Millbeck, Cumbria. Rachel was very keen that I bring a bottle of Rose Petal to the Lake District, and she planned to drink a glass in the garden on our last night. However, Claire and I have come home a day early to say our goodbyes to Julia, who is dying in hospital. Rose Petal Wine seems less significant.

Rachel saved this as she thought that it didn't seem right to drink it without us. We drank it in York at my parents', shared between nine. And it is fabulous. It has a fuller taste than my previous version, with just as much rose flavour. Duncan thought it sherry-like, and I will definitely make it again this year.
