We have started sampling the wine we bottled last year. Two bottles of red have been consumed. The first was elderberry. This had a slightly sweet edge to it. The other was elderberry and runner bean. This seems an odd combination but it also produced the best wine of the two. The runner beans made it smoother and drier by eliminating the sweet edge to it. We've also used some of the runner bean wine to marinate a leg of venison and to add to the filling for game pie. But more about that later.
