ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
KURAMBON TARU KOSHU WINE
Dazzling clarity with a whisper of green; a gentle viscosity pouring into a glass. Lots of Japanese citrus notes: yuzu, karin, kabosu, as well as grapefruit. A baby kick of acidity in the initial attack, but accompanied by fruity sweetness that keeps it from becoming edgy. There is a gauzy oakiness that gentle floats down at the end. A tricky three-person see-saw balance of fruitiness, lively acidity, and slight bitterness, pulled off exquisitely with assured skillfulness.
Wine Type: White Wine
HOW TO ENJOY
The oak blend gives it some heft that stands well to miso flavors, hot pot, mushrooms, pork, and winter root vegetables.
Best served chilled and in a white wine glass to bring out the aroma and taste.
KURAMBON WINERYLEARN MORE
Kurambon was founded in 1913. It prides itself in their close relationships with local grape farms. They put emphasis on wines made with Koshu grapes, a grape varietal that goes back a 1000 years. Instead of wines mechanically made, their aim is to create more natural wines where the grapes' transformation to wine is gently aided by wine makers.
