2020 Yume Yaaran Ambrosia
No Added Preservatives
Before there was wine, there was Ambrosia.
Ambrosia is distinguished from mead as mead is traditionally made with the addition of beer yeast, whereas Yume Ambrosia is made with naturally occurring yeast in the honey or botanical additions. Notes by Lou Chalmer - who makes this - Monovarietal pet nat from Nanda People’s Land. Yaaran is the indigenous name for Red River Gum. A medium-bodied honey with the sweetness slightly more dominant on the back palate, it tastes like dried peach. This comes from Pindjarup, south of Perth. The aromatics are a little more restrained, but there’s a little more palate weight, with fine tannins to balance. Versatile with vegetables, cooked seafood dishes and hard cheeses. Diluted with water, fermented for 10 months on full lees then bottled with a touch (10g/L) of residual sugar for spritz. Apiculture by Sawyer’s Apiaries, made by Lou.
