Bright golden straw color. Toasty aromas and flavors of buttered toast with light grape jam, toasted nuts, and vanilla creme wafer cookie with a silky, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, carefree honeyed nectarine finish. A nice toasty, easy drinking mead.

Pyment

Pyment is a particular sub-category of melomels, where the fruit in question is specifically: Grapes. It is important to note that the grape juice should be fermented with the honey, rather than blended in afterwards. ‘Mulsum’ is a historic variety of pyment that generally refers to the post-fermentation blend of wine and honey (and sometimes water or sea-water). Both red and white grapes may be used; ones made with white grapes are sometimes called "white mead." The best have enticing aromas of honey, custard and tropical fruits and are made in a dessert style.
