IQHILIKA AFRICAN HERBAL BLOSSUM



TASTING NOTES:

Pours clear, orange/yellow. Wonderful full mouthfeel, aroma of alcohol, spices, dark fruit, herbs, and honey. Sticky with lots of legs, reminding me of rooibos tea. Apples, honey, cinnamon, clove, and a bit of spicy heat. Finishes suprisingly dry, but leaves a nice taste to ponder. My wife mentions that it does taste "African" to her. Very nice and interesting mead. Tasted @ 60F.

COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION:

Our prize-winning mead - Gold medal award winner in the Speciality Category at the 2006 International Mead Festival in Boulder, Colorado.
A semi sweet mead (approx 20g/l residual sugar) with rooibos, honeybush tea, cinnamon and apple. The herbs provide a smooth structure to the mead with a lingering honey aftertaste. Ideally served at 12-14 degrees Celsius, in a large red wine glass to allow development of the nose.

A good stand alone sundowner, a well matched partner to spicy dishes and stir fries, game and poultry and a companion to desserts and coffees.
