My wine, 2006 vintage

Just opened a bottle of the wine I made in 2006 (see my blog posts from then here and here.) After bottling, I was disappointed: it had a bit of a prickle to it, presumably from an incomplete malo. But a few years down the line, it’s looking really nice. Fresh, with cherry and berry fruits, and a nicely sappy quality. A bit like a Loire red in style. No harshness at all.

I have 23 bottles left. I was expecting to have to pour them away, but this is really drinkable. A nice ending to a bit of fun.
