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.
Bottled at a generous 750 ml., Night Eyes is sure to bring the party to any gathering!
