Brilliant ruby color. Aromas and flavors of honeyed mulberries and blackberry seltzer with a soft, tangy, spritzy, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, crisp finish with notes of apple and mint finish. A tasty lively, lightly sparkling with nice, tangy berry flavor.

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.
