This is a gorgeous melomel style mead made from spanish honey, zesty Wexford blackcurrants balanced with dark, sweet cherries and tempered over the hint of honey to create an amazingly enticing drink with a beautiful, rich colour.
The Wild Red has a very clear, clean red fruit aroma with a blackcurrant and cherry tones and a very smooth long finish.
Serve: Delicious at room temperature or poured over ice with a thin slice of orange.
Food Pairing: Great paired with roast duck and Cumberland sauce and sticky barbecue ribs. With rich dark chocolate desserts, strong cheeses and dark chocolate.
