Product DescriptionWine Tasting Notes
CHAUCER'S Raspberry Mead is crisp, fruity and refreshing. The flavor of this wine explodes with raspberry and honeysuckle. The wine is a blend of our CHAUCER'S Mead and a smaller portion of our CHAUCER'S Raspberry Wine. Less sweet than our regular Mead, this wine finishes with a lingering crisp raspberry and honeysuckle impression. A blend of honey wine and fruit such as raspberry is known as Melomel. This blend of fruit and honey has been enjoyed for centuries. The raspberries for this wine are locally grown from Driscoll's berry growers in Watsonville, CA. The honey used to make CHAUCER'S Mead is a blend of alfalfa, orange blossom, sage and mountain wildflower collected from our local bee keepers in Northern California. Although this wine exhibits richness similar to a fine liqueur, this dessert-style beverage is not fortified and contains only 11% alcohol. To enjoy the full qualities of this wine, it should be consumed shortly after purchase.
