When you think about medieval drinks, my mind immediately goes to knights drinking mead. The honey wine is old school—like one of the world's first alcoholic beverages. Which may be why it fell out of favor with wine lovers; until recently when it was taken back from the Renaissance Fair nerds and brought into the fold of food and wine lovers. There's now a swarm of bottles popping up on various wine lists thanks to its rustic, regional charm. This Colorado mead is less sweet than you might think, with a complex citrus tang and a gently effervescent finish.
