Reddish amber color. Interesting aromas of baked berry, lightly pickled cucumber, and lipstick with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and a smooth, compelling, medium-long currant preserves on raisin nut toast and choke cherry jam finish. A pure berry flavored mead that is sure to satisfy with desserts or in a kir royal.

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.
