DOMAINE NAKAJIMA PET-NAT NATURAL ROSE KYOHO 2022
Nagano / Japan
-
A pet-nat made from the table grape variety Kyoho, which is the most planted grape in the world. After harvest, grapes are dried for 2 weeks prior to being pressed without any skin contact, and fermented in bottle without additions.

A super interesting and unique wine. Pretty closed on first opening however it quickly opens up to juicy, sweet red fruit notes and cranberries.

Yutaka Nakajima is a skilled and humble craftsman with an eye for simple beauty, producing hard-to-find wines in the basement of his house high up in the mountains. Nakajima sits at 850m above sea level in the Chikumagawa valley, a region that is cooler and drier than most of Japan. The estate has been farming its small hill since 2011 and only produces a few thousand bottles a year.
