Remember those peaches from last summer? I got a little happy learning how to can and kept stocking up on fruit. I did it first with peaches and we made some peach jam and peach wine.
Well, almost an entire year later, after many months of fermenting, settling, and a wee bit of filtering, it made its way into bottle yesterday! Yippee!
I had a wee taste and it’s good! It’s a bit on the strong side, estimated around 12% alcohol, which is high for your standard wine. The flavor is sweet, floral, and fruity. I also tasted a bit of honey, though none whatsoever was used during the wine making process.
James got a total of 22 bottles and took 6 of them with him to a work conference today.
I’m looking forward to enjoying more than a mere taste of the wine and partaking in a glass or two come November!
