nice looking drink. i think a dry peche wine would be interesting. the fruit wines i've tried have all too often been very sweet. one thing i liked about the dandelion wine my friend stamm used to make was that it had a touch of sweetness, but really smelled a lot sweeter than it actually tasted. i've yet to try honey mead, but i'm afraid it might be too sweet for me too.

This doesn't even smell sweet. My first impression was that it smelled and tasted like chardonnay, but I'm slowly revising that.

Mead doesn't have to be cloying so long as the proper yeast strain was used and the maker took care with the additions (most commonly something like acid blend...) The ginger mead we made was very dry and spicy enough that it needed well over a year to mellow properly. After that, it was quite delicious, though probably not what most people who are familiar with things like Elizabethan Mead are accustomed to.
