Bottling the Wine
Today we finally bottled the elderberry wine. I sterilized the bottles in boiling water first and then let them drain.
Then we used the siphon tube to drain the wine into the bottles. The jug made three full bottles of wine, and we had just enough left to taste in a glass.
It was so much tastier this time. John thinks it has a "Mogan David" kinda taste. Now I'm wondering how much better it will be after 6 months in the bottle. I guess we'll find out sometime in April 2016!
We put the shrink wrap tops on the bottles and put them in storage. Now we wait.... I need some catchy wine bottle labels. Hoping Colleen will help me with that!
