Light siam color. Creamy aromas and flavors of orange dreamsicle stick, spiced currants and cranberries, playdoh, and vanilla fudge with a silky, crisp, fruity light body and a delightful, easy finish revealing impressions of bruised fruit, wet leaf in a yard bag, peppered jicama, and hint of glued wood finish. A soft and delicate, earthy mead for 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.
