Acid League — Bee Complex
All through the winter, honey bees huddle together in their hive but when the first flowers appear they spring back to action. The worker bees move quickly to feed their queen, drawing the nectar from all the barely bloomed local flowers. This dessert wine Proxy captures the flavors of their first batch of honey—sweet, floral, and round with honey, peach, and calendula but with bright, balancing acidity from tangerine juice and ginger vinegar.
