About this wine

The color is lemon yellow with a slight beige tint.

The aroma is a balanced blend of Niagara's unique muscat and black tea from the brewing process, along with refreshing citrus fruits such as orange, kumquat, and grapefruit, as well as the scent of jasmine and mandarin orange flowers.

The taste is based on a pleasant citrus aroma, and is enveloped in the umami flavor derived from the peel and deep, refreshing acidity, while a subtle mineral astringency lingers in the mouth.

Good pairings include chicken breast stewed in lemon cream, Korean-style yellowtail tartare, fried chicken with orange escabeche, and grilled mackerel with yuzu pepper.

Please enjoy this dish when you want to enjoy a meal and conversation with close friends.

*The brochure (technical sheet) for this wine can be downloaded here.

Sales on the online store will begin at 10:00 AM on Thursday, January 25, 2024. Please wait a little longer until the release date.
