Reddish orange color. Earthy, fruity aromas and flavors of ripe raspberries in a basket and raspberry herb lozenge with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium body and an even, interesting, breezy finish displaying nuances of cranberry-sour cherry juice and nutskin finish. A nice fruit berry flavored mead that will be good on it’s own, with desserts, on in 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.
