Grape variety: Sauvignon Blanc

A dry white wine made only from 16-year-old Sauvignon Blanc (as of 2021) in the oldest section of Takizawa Winery's own vineyard, "Kaze no Batake." This will be the first release of "Kaze no Batake" as a single. 2021 was a harsh climate year with high temperatures and drought, but the old vines were firmly rooted, so the drought was unaffected and we were able to harvest very ripe and healthy grapes. is ready. The grapes are squeezed as soon as possible after being harvested. After a light debrevage, we started the primary fermentation with wild yeasts in stainless steel and resin tanks. After primary fermentation, the wine is transferred to stainless steel barrels suitable for aging, undergoing malolactic fermentation with wild lactic acid bacteria, and is bottled after aging for about 9 months. The appearance is yellow green. You can feel the scent of passion fruit and yellow flowers in the refreshing scent of herbs and grapefruit. The mouthfeel is very gentle, and the rich fruitiness spreads out. Due to the height of each element, we expect that it will become a deeper wine by letting it rest for several years. The addition of sulfites is kept to a minimum. Please store in a cool and dark place.
