Weekend Wine Pick: Harvest Gold 2013 Dry Mead

Dry Mead.jpg

As a wine lover, It's hard to believe that two weeks have passed since I last took a sip of the good stuff. The truth is I've had really bad stomach issues lately, and alcohol isn't exactly known to be the best cure-all for digestive ailments. I figured that a splash of dessert wine couldn't hurt though.

Rosewood Estates Winery Harvest Gold 2013 Dry Mead is a light honey wine the goes down smooth and kind of makes it okay that the summer is coming to an unceremonious end. I found that I had to drink it well-chilled, otherwise it tasted a bit off.  But once you pop it into the fridge for awhile it's quite nice, if you like a mix of floral and honey notes that aren't too heavy or syrupy.  Here's a bit more info about this harves mead:

Perks: This dry mead is sure to provoke a lot of buzz (bad pun, sorry) at the dinner table. Your guests will no doubt be curious as to what mead is.
