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.

Mark Harland's Breakfast Wine - 24th May 2019
Mark brought this bottle over as payment for some pond plants. It is called Breakfast Wine, not because it is made of bacon, toast and coffee, or because of the time one is to drink it, but because it is made from fruits associated with breakfast - pineapple, grapefruit, banana. Possibly raspberries and/or blueberries too. It has a lovely pink blush to it and I thought that grapefruit was the prominent taste. In fact, the first taste is bitter and quite a jolt, but quickly a more rounded, pleasant flavour comes through. An interesting bottle.
