This mead is closer in style to the traditional meads that some people have experienced in Europe. It is an exciting new alternative to dessert wines and should be something to talk about at the holiday dinner table this season. Sweet floral honey notes lead into a long finish that is well appreciated alone or with your favourite desserts.

Bottle from Brewery Creek, sinthetic cork, vintage 2007, 5 years old
Golden color. Already during the pour the aroma reveals a glorious mature mead, with notes of wildforest honey, wood, delicate fruits, some alcohol, light Madeira feeling. The mouthfeel is very sweet but not syrupy; complex flavor, with accents of honey, wood and Marsala, light fruity touch, pleasant alcohol presence; some light oxidisation must have happened here, and it’s all good.
Clearly the best Canadian/BC Mead I had to date; it approaches the Polish meads, similar sensorial profile, but less syrupy.
