Mead

DRINKS MADE THE REAL WAY.

The Solstice

Medium Dry Mead
 
NECTAR OF THE GODS

“Midsummer  brings the long drawn day. The dawn dance sends us on our way. Sun drenched hours lost in bee flight, then honey sweet the solstice night”

The Solstice celebrates the mountain foraged honeys and pristine rivers of the East Cape.

 
WINEMAKER’S NOTE 

The early nose displays delicate floral nectar and citrus, in the mouth a smooth rounded body. Subtle manuka leads the palate to a clean balanced finish as the French oak tannins infuse to soften the sweet honey aftertaste.

OCCASIONS

…as an aperitif over ice or at room temperature after a meal its perfect, and as a pairing for cheese, nuts, desserts –sensational. This mead has been produced as a food wine and pairs fabulously with dishes that call for a sweeter or spicier sauce,  especially  Asian cuisine.
