Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced reviewed this wine as follows:

I'm still at a loss to explain or make notes on Honey Mead. On the nose there is definite honey and floral notes-pollen? The palate for me is a little tougher. It's light for sure, some wax and honeycomb, nectar and repeat of the floral. Not overly warm alcohol, smooth and lingering honeyed finish. For now, I'll keep trying them and save judgement for down the road.
Tasted: April 2017
Mead is an alcoholic beverage created by fermenting honey with water. Sometimes, fruits, grains, spices and even hops are added to the mix. Alcohol levels for mead can range from about 8% to over 20%, and mead styles can range from still, carbonated, naturally sparkling; dry, semi-sweet, or sweet. Mead Royale Honey Wine from Ontario, Rosewood 2015, is aromatic and has also seen some maturation in oak barrel giving more complexity the mead. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
