Dark ruby color. Fruity aromas and flavors of spiced berries and yams with a supple, tangy, off-dry light-to-medium body and a graceful, appealing, buoyant cranberry relish, honeyed blueberries, and nutskin finish. A very tasty blueberry flavored 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.
