Pale golden amber color. Aromas of saddle soap, suede, spiced raisin compote, and almond with a soft, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length nut oil, dried pear and nectarine, and hint of mint finish. A nicely layered, savory 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.
