Brilliant reddish amber color. Fruity, earthy aromas and flavors of wild raspberries, herbal honey, and dough with a silky, vibrant, off-dry medium body and a graceful, captivating, breezy finish with overtones of raspberry jelly and nuts finish. A bright, fruity, earthy raspberry flavored mead.

Melomel

Melomel is a traditional mead to which fruit has been added. The fruit character is the driver here, and whether dry or sweet should be very evident. Key here is a natural, ‘off-the-vine’ evocation rather than any suggestion of artificial flavorings.
