Clear steely amber color. Aromas of peach scented lipstick, wild strawberries on the vine, and conditioned leather purse with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long strawberry-peach kefir and vanilla yogurt nuts and raisins finish. A intriguingly savory fruit-flavored mead with nice nuances.

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.
