Lemon Balm Mead
Awards: Gold Medal, “Best in Show,” and “Best Mead” at Northwest Wine Summit Competition, 2016. Double Gold Medal, Seattle Wine Awards 2017.
A light bodied, brightly acidic mead brings forward the citrus and herbaceous notes of lemon balm. Fresh harvested Melissa from Foothill Farm in Colbert, WA is layered over a standard infusion of dried leaves to produce a full-spectrum extraction of the plant’s flavors. A subtle addition, this mead is a natural over ice on a summer’s day.
