Professional Review

"You can expect a refreshing taste reminiscent of lactic acid fermentation, with a fresh aroma of green apples and European pears. It shares a similar fruity impression with New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. You'll also detect flavors of fresh coconut and watermelon, and the aftertaste is long-lasting, with a full sweetness of rice. It is recommended to serve at room temperature, but if you prefer to have it chilled, pour it into a wine glass and enjoy the taste while feeling the temperature changes."

Pairing Suggestion: It goes well with the savory aroma of open-flame roasted foods such as grilled sweetfish.
