"I don't envisage myself revisiting this peculiar wine anytime soon."

Korambon Sol Lucet Koshu 2014 Yamanashi, Japan Produced entirely from the Koshu grape, a thick and pink-skinned variety that is more popular in the fruit bowls of Japan than it is in the country's wine bottles and perhaps I can see why. Does this actually smell vaguely of Sake or is my snout playing tricks on me? There's also some green, very green apple in their too. Very, very light in both colour and character. There is a certain delicate, pure side to it, but what really sticks is the excessive bitterness that makes it rather unpleasant to drink. That said, although I don't envisage myself revisiting this peculiar wine anytime soon it remains much more interesting to try than something more run of the mill. October 2014
