COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Almost 40% of what we eat is pollinated by insects, primarily honey bees. We work with farmers around the region to nurture the health of our agricultural community and maintain the natural beauty of our working landscape. Our Melissa Sparkling Mead is both a product of that special relationship and a celebration of it. The wine in this bottle is unfiltered and has a thin layer of yeast on the bottom of the bottle, left over from the natural carbonation process. Pour slowly to leave the sediment behind. Serve chilled.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2012
Tasting at Papsø’s
Cloudy light blond color. Aroma of honeydew, with a nice fruity and flowery edge; light elderflower. The mouthfeel is quite weak, and semi-dry; the carbonation doesn’t help it; there is a common honey flavor.
The aroma is better than the flavor; not my style, but quite well done.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy very pale....well, not really yellow with a small white head. Dry, phenollic aroma with a discreet honey character. Appears almost thin-bodied, a heavy sparkle, dry white wine character, pears and phenols, again only discreet honey. Not overly complex. 160612
