(NV Vintage) Chaucer's Mead uses 100% pure honey for this specialty dessert-style wine produced in hives throughout Northern California and is composed of a blend of three types; orange, alfalfa and sage. Each of these components brings a unique quality to the blend and contributes to the overall complexity of the wine. Orange adds a pungent orange blossom flavor and has light color. Alfalfa is neutral in flavor but yields a dark, amber color. Sage, on the other hand, has a mild taste and a light color.
(Without mulling spices) A bit too sweet for me, but I'm thankful to have tried it as a historical curiosity. Starts off sugar sweet, then honey, and finally a tart wine finish.
