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