Mead tastes very much like wine. And if it tastes like wine at the first racking, you are on the right track. Good luck on this and all future meads.

Some mediums and drys can be very wine like. The honey character will likely depend on sweetness and yeast type used. A few other things can affect character too but think on those two factors first.

And yes, I do routinely ferment dry, stabilise and then back sweeten.....with the honey who's character I want at the forefront........

edit....... and there was me thinking that Salisbury was in Wiltshire, not Dorset.......
