A Tiger Barn Cattery 'House Special' Wine Recipe
Woohoo! Coming to the end of the season so it's time for another vintner's House Special Blend ... I love putting the leftovers to good use. A wine recipe like this would be impossible to write or to follow. If you experiment a lot with wine making, you'll be in a similar situation to me, a few failures and extras sitting in demijohns waiting to be saved. I had a couple of half gallons from July & August that need a blender's touch and of course I had a few bits and pieces of currant wines to pitch in for the complex fruity body we both enjoy.
Final blend SG: 1.029
