Tasting Note As Niagara's first meadery, honey wine is something very dear to the Roman family who are third generation beekeepers. But this particular mead holds an extra special place in their hearts. The 2006 Harvest Gold was the first mead Rosewood produced and this 2011 is a proud successor. Full of lilies, camomile, clover, asian pear, pineapple and a touch of bees wax, it's a very pretty beverage ... The moderate acidity and medium-sweet finish make it a great alternative to the usual suspects of Gewürztraminer and off-dry Riesling, which are the go-to partners of spicy foods like chicken tikka. But the Harvest Gold might actually be a more prudent choice with its flavours standing-up better to the spice than many wines do. (Mike Di Caro, spotlighttoronto.com, Jan. 22, 2013)

#RUNE #rr02_Uruz This was the Mead that we drank at the Goth Picnic 2013. This is a lovely light Mead, worth picking up & storing for some special event – years in the future. It’s grown on NIAGARA ESCARPMENT made of limestones. Many limestones are composed from skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral or foraminifera. The escarpment essentially represents the remnant shoreline of a sea. This makes this wine particular good in colloidal minerals, which is important minerals that we need that is no longer readily available in our food, even Organic Foods.
