Enlightenment wines meadery presents: 2019 Night Eyes. Sparkling botanical apple-cherry-sumac-rose hip mead.
If the meads made by Enlightenment wines meadery were a song catalogue, Night eyes would be the pop hit – with some funk in the trunk. This sparkling, pet-nat style mead is bubbly and fragrant up front, followed by intricate flavors of wild-fermented yeast and foraged herbs.
Night Eyes is made from New York State honey, cherries and apples, which are fermented together for six months before being infused with hand-picked sumac and rose hips. After aging for another six months in wood barrels, this bone-dry mead goes through a second bottle fermentation that produces its lively effervescence.
