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.

Mint, Rhubarb & Elderflower Wine 2017 - Final Bottle (1), 28th-29th July 2020

This bottle has not improved on keeping. It was okay, but nothing more than, and I thought I detected a bitter note. The two days on which we drank it, though, were excellent. I had long walks in the Pennines on Tuesday and the Dales on Wednesday - and both were beautiful in different ways. The Pennines are grittier and bleaker somehow.

Coming back from the Dales the car made alarming noises, intermittently at first and then - 2 miles from home - continually. I called the AA and sat by the road until they came.
