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.

Rose Petal & Orange 2017 - Final Bottle (2), 9th-10th November 2019
This was one of those bottles that improves on having been opened for a day. I served it up at the Wine Party, where it came a disappointing 8th out of 12 with an average score of 2.8. Cornelia wrote that it was inoffensive, and I was inclined to agree. However, on Sunday David and Liz came over to help us polish off what remained and this wine was transformed. It had become fuller, more buttery and far better as a result. And there I was thinking that oxygen ruined wine.
