Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of lemon, orange blossom, white flowers, and lemon balm and lemon meringue with a round, tangy, fruity medium body and a stimulating, medium-length finish that exhibits notes of lemon custard and lemonheads candies, pickled ginger, honeysuckle, and lemon almond cookie. Rich and supple but with a delightful and authentic citrus acidity to elevate it.

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.
