Brilliant light ruby color. Aromas and flavors of soy rice cake, balsamic drizzled berries, nut brittle, and milk curd with a supple, vibrant, spritzy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, breezy finish with overtones of strawberry-cranberry spritzer and pickled cherries finish. A nice appetizing berry flavored mead with a refreshing spritz.

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.
