Brilliant emerald straw color. Aromas and flavors of Italian lemon juice, nuts, and grilled lemon and oregano with a supple, tart, spritzy, fruity light-to-medium body and a medium-length green apple skin finish. A fun, artisanal lemonade like 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.
