This elderberry mead is off-dry, with a vibrant honey character. We use three quarters of a pound of organic elderberries per bottle, and only pure raw northern honey for fermentation. Elderberries are native to Vermont and Quebec and are used medicinally to support the immune system. The wine is fermented dry, aged in stainless steel for a year, and has a small touch of honey added just before bottling for roundness.

5oz pour at Claire’s - Hardwick, VT. A really nice mingled aroma that starts with floral, pale honey notes and wraps up in red fruits. Clean and strongly aromatic. The flavors are good, this time swapping the presentation, with tart, cherubic elderberries and then finishing with a mingle of light honey sweetness. I think this would really appeal to red wine drinkers. The honey fruit balance is great, but leans fruit. And it’s dry throughout, which is greatly appreciated.
