Coral orange pink color. Earthy, musty aromas of wet grass and straw and nutshell with a silky, bright, moderately sweet medium body and a smooth, breezy honeyed berries and cherries, watermelon sorbet, and nutskin finish. A sweet fruity dessert 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.
