Wine Tasting

7 Mar

We racked our chapel wine last night. Chapel is our combination cherry and apple wine. I must say it was pretty good. I do believe it has every bit of the potential 13% alcohol. (Did you know that after a certain level, the alcohol it produces becomes toxic to the yeast?) Of the family and friends present, nobody complained about the taste. It really was a fun evening–lasagna supper, after dinner wine, conversation and laughs. This is what makes the wine-making so much fun. It is easy to share with others. We stabalized and tasted our pumpkin wine, Madilyn’s Delight, also. From starting a bright orange, it has finished clear, a semi-sweet table wine. Even though we are just learning about making wine, I must say we do a good job.
My father made me a wine rack. He truly does spoil me. I asked, and he built a ninety-two bottle wine rack so that we can properly age our wine in my basement. I hope he doesn’t think I take his quality craftsmanship for granted. He really is an artisan. Unfortunately, the people who poured the concrete floor of my basement were not quite so meticulous, so we need to add feet to the wine rack so it is solid.
