Siam color. Fruity aromas of crushed ripe raspberry, cranberry, fresh crumpet, and tomato leaf with a satiny, crisp, off-dry medium body and a seamless, medium-length blackberry, anise, and black tea finish. Vibrant notes of ripe berries shine through this juicy melomel.

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.
