Mead Review Sky River Semi-sweet Mead

Picture

I’m going to give a shot at a tasting of my second mead, ever.
This is a semi-sweet mead from Sky River Winery in Washington, situated across the small valley from Chateau St Michelle Winery.
Appearance: light golden yellow, and clear.
Nose: floral, slight honey, alcohol and maybe its sulphites I smell?  I’m new to wine tasting, so that is what I am picking up.
Palate: Light, fairly sweet, some alcohol, smooth and a bit sticky from the sweetness.
Overall:  Not being a fan of sweeter wines, I still enjoy this quite a bit.  The honey really stands out and there is no doubt that it is a mead.  I am really curious to try a dry mead and see if that hits my wheel house.
