What vintage were these entries btw? Im wondering how old wine entries tend to be on average
These three are all young wines, Ajmassa5983. Elderflower is often bottled and drunk while it is still fermenting. My winning bottle was started in November. My bochet was started in May 2017, and the t'ej was June. IMO, fruit wines need a far longer aging time but flowers and honey? They can be ready for drinking in weeks... (my meads tend to be low ABV although the elderflower is about 12%)

Again, Thank you all. My challenge for 2017 is to make a mead that scores the maximum of 20 points. working on this - with a low ABV and flavor hopped mead...

Congrats!

We love photos! It is nice to have a look at the medals.

It is kind of like when a gal tells her friends that she just got engaged. The first thing the friends want is to look at the ring.. :)
