Yellow straw color. Fruity, spicy, artificial aromas and flavors of baked peach, orange blossoms, ginger ale, and wintergreen with a soft, bright, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, medium-long finish imparting nuances of spiced apple and pear, quince, floral honey on plantain, and lemon curd finish. A pure and flavorful, aperitif-style mead with a nice balance of delicate orange and traditional mead flavors.

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.
