Category: White Wine
Format: 750 mL
Producer: Niagara College Teaching Winery
Alcohol: 12.0% Alcohol/Vol.
And now for something completely different. This mead is recommended for those who like white wine that is dry, crisp, clean with sweet & sour notes; this is a great alternative. Score: 88/100
Tasting Note: Straw to gold in colour with good acidity, an intense nose & a fairly long length on the finish. Wine features grapefruit, pear, kumquat, lychee, orange zest, honey & Acacia flowers on the nose.
Negatives: The aromatic nose maybe be too pungent for some.
Interesting Point: “Made using honey produced at the Niagara College’s Daniel J Patterson (NOTL) campus. This honey farm (apiary) is managed by the Commercial Beekeeping Program staff and students. The mead is produced by students of the Winery and Viticulture Technician Program under supervision of our Head Winemaker at Niagara College Teaching Winery.” NC
Pairings: Drink this now or in the next 3-5 years & pair it with sweet & sour pork.
My Opinion: Recommended
