Vin de noix ~ Green walnut wine (2) ~ done
I decanted and tested the vin de noix (green walnut wine) that I wrote about in August, after gathering green walnuts in New Mexico and trying an ancient European recipe for a fortified summer wine. The wine is deep, dark walnut-brown with a hint of red . . . the aroma is wonderful: warm, spicy. And the taste? Very nice, not at all bitter and only a tiny bit astringent. A delicious, rich aperitif with hints of citrus and spice. I decided to stop the steeping now and bottle this batch. A fun and successful experiment.
