Style: Honey Wine
Size: 375ml (half-sized bottle)
Residual sugar: .75%, Dry

This elderflower honey wine presents itself as something different, with a formidable floral bouquet. On the palette, a dry yet viscous liquid expresses itself with notes of grapefruit and coriander.
Melissaios (“one belonging to the bees”), starts with creamy white, fragrant, wild-foraged elder blossoms plucked and dried, which are then steeped in a hoshead of fresh mountain honey and spring water and made into a dry-style honey wine. Best served chilled or cellar temperature (cool).
This is well suited as a dry desert wine.
