Hidden Legend Peach Mead
Hidden Legend Winery Hidden Legend Peach Mead (12.5% alcohol by volume) smells like peaches and honey with a little alcohol in the background and immediately reminds you why fresh peaches and honey go so well together and has you thinking of mid-summer when the fresh peaches hit the farmer's markets. It also has me thinkng about a place in Spring Grove Wisconsin that made the best peach pies in the world and burned to the ground just before out last visit. The mead is still, standard strength and brilliant amber. A swirl of the glass shows some long legs. It starts semi-sweet featuring peaches, honey and alcohol with medium tartness and a slight touch of tannin near the finish. While it is semi-sweet the mead has enough acid and tannin to keep the sweetness under control and give the mead dimension. This full bodied mead is very drinkable. I enjoyed it immensely with half a dozen O'Scanny oysters. I rate Hidden Legend Peach Mead 80.
