This wine comes from Norwich and has no grape actually named. 

Nose: quite flat, a hint of spice 

Palette: fruity (blackcurrant), slight spice finish, little tannin 

Finish: blackcurrant 

It's OK - lacks depth and is more like drinking an alcoholic squash. We had this with chicken dinner - it suited as it's a very light red to compliment the white meat. 

I would use this in cooking - jellies, summer fruit based desserts, fruit coulis, redcurrants based meat dishes.

This isn't actually English wine, just imported grape juice fermented into wine in Norfolk. Heard reviews of this being vile, so I think maybe you're giving it some credit here=). That being said, using it for cooking means you don't fancy it either for drinking. Not something I'd buy normally, so nice to see you've tried it anyway.

I didn't think it was home grown - I really can't remember how it ended up in our rack but being as it was St George's Day it seemed a chance to try.

It wasn't unpleasant as a drink but it wasn't wine so if you were comparing it to wine it wouldn't get off the mark.
