ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
ARUGANO BRANCA CLAREZA
Irresistible aroma of Japanese citrus such as ponkan, satsuma mandarin, amanatsu, as well as grapefruit and lime, but the party doesn't stop there—it's joined by some green apple, herbs and peppery cinnamon spice. There is a mineral complexity, firm acidity, yeasty umami, and a salty tangy finish.
Wine Type: White Wine
Varietal: Koshu Grape
HOW TO ENJOY
Born to be served with miso, soy sauce and wasabi, this wine is a dream partner to Japanese food. Also goes well with fresh water fish like trout, salted and grilled, sushi, steamed shellfish, vegetable tempura, fresh, piping hot croquettes with salt and a squeeze of lemon. I'm not drooling, you are!
Best chilled at around 46-48°F and served in a wine glass.
