Honeyed Peach – Starlight Meadery

Our wine tonight is tonight is a mead, Honeyed Peach from Starlight Meadery in Pittsboro, North Carolina.

Style of Melomel Mead.

A Melomel is a style of Mead with fruit added to enhance the flavor.

Orange-Yellow in color.

Nose more reminiscent of a peach cobbler and wildflower honey.

Serve chilled.

Semi-sweet.

Slightly effervescent.

Honey is prevalent on the tongue, the finish like biting into fresh juicy peach.

12.5% ABV

When judging Melomel Meads we want the honey to remain noticeable along with the fruit flavors.

Starlight Meadery’s Honeyed Peach is a solid example and we’d score this one a Silver Medal.
