Dark ruby garnet color. Fruity aromas and flavors of berry butter on cinnamon rye toast, blueberry cobbler, and berry sorbet with a silky, soft, fruity medium body and a smooth, appealing, breezy finish with shades of nougat and creme brulee finish. A pleasant, easy-drinking berry-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.
