Cheese Chicken Game

Minutely hazy old gold color. Meaty, savory aromas and flavors of turkey bouillon, alfalfa, and chestnut honeycomb with a satiny, tangy, off-dry medium-to-full body and an even, complex, long finish conveying notes of dried tropical fruits and apricots, almond cookie, and mint cream finish. A complex, fruity and savory mead that will be great at the table.

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.
