Description

This wine is an exceptional representation and expression of Japanese culture and wine making. This gentle wine is quiet and persistent and certainly gives a presence on the palate which is delightful.

It is a natural orange looking wine that has sweet and gentle aromas of apricot, apple compote, Darjeeling, old rose with subtle notes of vanilla which come from its 8 months in oak barrels. This is complex on the palate from the skins and seeds of the Koshu grape come from the gentle skin contact, this creates a 3 dimensional feeling in the mouth.

Koshu grapes are grown in the Fuefuki district, one of the 13 cities located in Yamanashi Prefecture. Harvest takes place from late September to early October. This wine spends 3 weeks on skins to achieve the vibrant apricot-skin hue. Fermentation in a stainless steel tank at 24 to 26 degrees for about 28 days, in an oak barrel at 20 to 22 degrees for about 14 days. The wine spends 8 months in oak barrels.

Food Pairing:
Matches great with dishes that have a sweet taste or mirin, sugar and soy sauce. Especially good with dishes using wild vegetables.
