Hidden Legend Winery
Dark Honey Mead
750ml, Wax Sealed Natural Cork
Our dark honey mead is a direct descendant of our most popular mead wine, this robust yet semidry honey wine is made from a darkened honey that produces rich tones and clearly defined layers of flavor. Hidden Legend dark honey mead complements heartier meat dishes, wild game, rich ethnic meals, spicy foods, and chocolate. Best served either slightly chilled or at room temperature.
This honey mead has an almost bourbon like quality that appeals to whiskey sippers as well as mead wine connoisseurs. This honey mead appeals to our beer drinkers as well though it is not a beer but a honey wine.
Dark Mead is traditionally known and a bochet. Using the same wildflower honey as the Pure Honey Mead, the process used to make this mead wine is different in that the honey is heated until it turns a rich amber color before the fermentation. The darkened honey creates a robust honey mead with very complex malty, smoky, and caramel flavors that make this mead wine the perfect companion to many of your favorite hardier dishes. Some of our mead wine drinkers say that this honey mead reminds them of a porter or even a stout beer.
