Project B Mead – Pyment Batch 008
Made from backyard honey in Brendan Hilferty’s Newtown house. This one includes wholebunch Mudgee cabernet as the blending component in the mead.
Pale red colour. Strong, waxy honey scents, some ashy notes, spice. Rose hip tea to taste, some fruit sweetness, honey too, soft texture, freshness and brightness, a rose wine kind of element and finishes nutty savoury and yeasty. It’s a lovely thing to drink. Lightly sweet only, very dry, bony, chewy-chalky finish. Excellent.
