Pirtle Winery Effervescent MeadFrom the meadery:

A sparkling champagne-style version of Mead and is Elbert Pirtle's favorite. Winner of numerous gold medals and third place for "Best of Show", Indiana International Competition, 1995.

An elegant champagne version of our favorite mead, it has won numerous awards and is my personal favorite of our wines (E. Pirtle.)

This mead is perfect for festive occasions, served with cheese and fruit or with lighter desserts after dinner.

Brilliant light gold color with great effervescence.

Aroma and Flavor:

Strong honey nose behind a champagne-like 'tickle'. This mead has a strong honey flavor from start to finish, and very little acid in the finish.

Overall Impressions:

Comments from the review team: "Champagne tickle!" "Order a case for New Years Eve!"
