Pinot Noir-based rosé Petnut. Mainly whole bunch pressed Pinot (partly carbonic maceration) blended with 5 % Riesling. The foam is weak and delicate even as a pet nut, and it has a cute fruity feel that makes you want to put a surprise mark "Strawberry!" Only 120 bottles have been shipped to Japan.
Based in Nelson , NZ , Kunoh Wines is a label by Yuki Nakano, a promising young Japanese brewer . Mr. Nakano is from Seika-cho, Soraku-gun, Kyoto Prefecture, and came into contact with wine when he visited Australia as an exchange student during his university days. After graduating from university, he started winemaking in 2015 while working at a French/Italian restaurant in Osaka . The number nine is read as Kuno in Noh mask , and Kuno is the last name of Mr. Nakano's maternal grandparents . So, the Kunoh Wines project , which started with the desire to leave the name of Kuno as a wine label, is currently releasing wines from Nelson in New Zealand and Miyagi Prefecture in Japan . It is based in New Zealand. Nakano's own interpretation of "something that oozes out" from his daily life and the character of the land. “Thank you to everyone in Japan. I ’m Yuki Nakano from Kuno Wine . We hope that you will enjoy the 2020 wine, which is brewed from grapes that have grown healthy under the strong sea breeze .
