The aim here is to produce a wine roughly in the style of a lighter Bonnezeaux wine, with an alcohol level of around 13%. This wine well repays a storage period of at least 12 months in the bottle. It is then a very pleasant wine for drinking on social occasions, or when the summer evening calls for a restful period in the garden and a glass of a sweeter wine.
Freeze the Rhubarb and gooseberries before use for maximum impact.
