Red Mead Still Medium Sweet
Silver medal, Best Red trophy at the 2017 National Fruit Wine competition.
Our customers have been asking us for years to make a red mead. So we finally relented! This is a stunning mead (technically, melomel) with native honeys (including Manuka honey), the fruitiness of boysenberries, and the richness of plum.
Red Mead can be served at room temperature of chilled. It makes a great Sangria:
Combine and stand in a fridge overnight.Strain.Add 10-20% soda to serve.
- 1 bottle Red Mead
- 250 - 300ml orange juice (fresh squeezed)*
- 4 Tblspn lemon juice
- 1 large orange thinly sliced
- 1 large lemon (Meyer) thinly sliced
- 2 nectarines or white peaches, sliced
*The amount of orange juice will determine how much the sangria tastes like a wine base or just fruit juice.
