Minutely hazy gold color. Floral, citrusy aromas and flavors of orange blossoms, tangerine almond biscotti, and suede with a satiny, vibrant, off-dry medium-to-full body and a seamless, appealing, long finish with accents of clementine sorbet, honeyed mint, chocolate orange peel, and pepper finish. A mouthwatering and pure flavored orange mead for desserts or cocktails.

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.
