Pale salmon orange color. Fresh, fruity aromas and flavors of raspberries, nougat, and paper mache with a supple, tangy, petillant, fruity light-to-medium body and a graceful, snappy berry sorbet, honeyed apple and nuts, and raspberry lozenge finish. A pleasant raspberry 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.
