Golden silver color. Rich, floral aromas and flavors of baked stone fruits, citrus cream, and exotic tropical fruits with a supple, bright, off-dry light-to-medium body and a graceful, delightful, medium-length finish with notes of melon, honey, and minerals. A flavor packed mead with nice complexity and depth of flavor that will go sell with spicy seafood dishes.

Traditional meads should incorporate only honey as a fermentable ingredient, along with water and of course yeast. They can range in character from dry to semi-sweet to sweet, and may be sparkling or still. While not necessarily “traditional”, they may also be fortified and/or barrel-aged. Whether the honey used is a single varietal or a mixture, it is important for a successful traditional mead to evidence the floral nature of the honey; indeed, it should be the defining characteristic. Some acidity is often desired to balance sweetness, but this is not necessary. Lighter versions may be analogous to white wines of corresponding sweetness/dryness, but should present distinctly honeyed emphasis.
