Sparrow & Vine Project B Mead Cabernet Pyment

Sparrow & Vine Project B Mead Cabernet Pyment

Regular price $30.00

Batch: N006 // 750ml // ABV 8.7%
A blend a mead and grapes is known as a Pyment. This is a dry, still wine best served chilled.

Co-ferment of Newtown honey with 2020 organic Cabernet Sauvignon from Vinfera wines in Mudgee. Intention was to make something closer to Rose and halfway to a “session” style – so alcohol is lower at 8.7%. Zero sulphur or other additions.

Grapes were kept as whole bunches so only picked up light colour. Light bodied, low tannin, pretty crisp acidity. Fruit flavours in the watermelon/ light strawberry vicinity. - Brendan Hilferty

Pale red colour. Strong, waxy honey scents, some ashy notes, spice. Rose hip tea to taste, some fruit sweetness, honey too, soft texture, freshness and brightness, a rose wine kind of element and finishes nutty savoury and yeasty. It’s a lovely thing to drink. Lightly sweet only, very dry, bony, chewy-chalky finish. Excellent. - Wine Front
