Classic Mead

Classic Mead is Medovina’s most versatile mead. Our goal with Classic mead is to produce a mead with enough complexity and structure to be interesting as a stand alone libation. At the same time we are targeting a mead that is not so overpowering that pairing it with dinner entrees becomes difficult. Classic Mead is a pleasant sipping mead, but it also works with appetizers, main courses, or after dinner.

Classic Mead is available in an Off Dry or Semi Sweet finish.  Classic Mead is best appreciated at cellar temperatures or slightly chilled.

The Off Dry Classic Mead can be accurately described as a BIG mead. The nose is clean, somewhat floral with just a hint of something sweet.  The taste is bold, rich and complex. The earthy tones warm the palate and both contrast and compliment the more floral notes to the nose.  A hint of sweetness is evident on the finish.  Classic Off Dry would compliment the most robust of meals - a hearty beef stew, elk, duck, goose or Thanksgiving turkey.  

Classic Mead in the Semi Sweet finish is dry by mead standards, but it is about midrange on Medovina's sweetness barometer.  A quick swirl in your glass will release fruity esters and a very pleasant, sweet nose. Compared to the Classic Off Dry, it the taste is lighter, slightly less alcoholic, and perhaps a bit more acidic. Classic Semi Sweet, though lighter than Classic Off Dry still has plenty of body.  It is a very nice sipping mead and would compliment delicate fish entrees as well as spicy Thai entrees and vegetarian casseroles.  

Both versions of Classic Mead would compliment a cheese and fruit plate enjoyed before or after dinner.

We are very interested in hearing about your favorite mead and food pairings.  Also, if you have some tasting notes to share with us, we would be very pleased to include them in our descriptions of our meads.

The new Classic Mead 2007 is now available in an off dry finish with French Oak.  The oak adds another dimension and added complexity to this mead.  Great for grill and BBQ.
