Introducing the wine of the day
[Wine from Takeda Winery]

● Domaine Takeda Berry A Furuki Red 2019
The approximately 70-year-old Muscat Berry A tree planted by Juzaburo Takeda, the third generation of our company, has been carefully nurtured to the present day by the fifth generation. Old vine grapes bring a deep flavor to wine, but 70-year-old vines are rare both in Japan and overseas. The reason why we are able to keep our vines healthy after so many years is because we have been growing grapes and making wine on our own 15 hectare farm (natural farming) since our founding in 1920. In addition to the gorgeous aroma of berry A, please enjoy the powerful and deep taste created by the age of the tree. 2019 vintage.
Varieties: 100% grapes harvested from our own farm (100% Muscat Berry A) ●Takeda Winery Blanc de Noir Barrel Aged 2020
White wine made from black grapes. A high-quality wine that creates a wonderful harmony between the sweet fruity scent of berry A and the deep nutty aroma obtained from barrel fermentation. Fermented loosely squeezed black grapes in barrels. Alcoholic fermentation of the fruit juice in a barrel produces a softer aroma than aging the sake in a barrel. It is characterized by an elegant, gorgeous, delicate aroma and taste. The color is pale purple pink. In 2020, the scent of white flowers, vanilla, acerola and black currant fruit. A juicy wine with a good balance of pure fruit and moderate acidity. The bitterness of the tannins that you can feel in the aftertaste adds depth to the flavor. Variety: Yamagata Muscat Berry A 100%
[Grape Republic wine]
Rosa2021 (left), Arancione 2021 (right)
100% grapes from Yamagata Prefecture are used. Delaware and Steuben brewed and blended in a variety of ways. Before bottling, the Delaware juice is put back in to adjust the sugar content and re-fermented in the bottle. Of course, no antioxidants are added. You can feel the refreshing scent of strawberries and blue herbs like seleuille in the depth. The taste is as fresh as the aroma, with a moderate acidity and a sweet and sour taste like red berries. There is also a dryness of green herbs later. The effervescence is felt firmly and is
exhilarating. The aftertaste is compact and light.
Fruit wine (sparkling) Breeds: 53% Delaware from Yamagata Prefecture, 47% Steuben
Uses 80% Delaware and 20% Steuben from Yamagata Prefecture. Delaware and Steuben brewed in various brewing methods and blended in Summer 2022. 10% whole bunch fermentation, aging period about 10 months. 54% amphora aged, 46% stainless steel tank aged. Spontaneously fermented with wild yeasts. No clarification, no filtration, no other additives such as antioxidants. The change after opening is gradual, but it is better to start early on the day of opening, when you can feel the juiciness of the fruit.
◆ Consideration of taste
This year’s Arancione blends Delaware with black grape Steuben. The color is reddish orange. The scent is a rich scent like a combination of strawberry syrup and orange honey. The taste has a sweet and sour taste of berries, and the depth is accented with tannins extracted from the peel and seeds. Overall, it has a fresh, succulent sharpness. ◆Consideration of temperature and method of serving
It is a wine that can be enjoyed with a fresh sweet and sour taste, so it is recommended to take it out of the refrigerator and gradually raise the temperature to enjoy the change and spread of the aroma. You can enjoy it in a compact glass if you want to make the most of its freshness, or in a burgundy type glass if you want to make the most of the juiciness and aroma of the fruit.
Making the most of the sweet and sour berry-based nuances and the richness of taste and flavor, dishes using fresh ingredients and dishes with sweet and sour seasoning. Suggestions for cooking include burrata cheese and strawberry salad and chicken thighs stewed in wine vinegar.
