I turned 61 years old today.
By the way to go home from Hakone, I got terrible storm rainfall while the driving.
I couldn’t see anything.
It was as if I drove under a waterfall.
I was so scared!
After I came home, I cooked dinner Temaki-Sushi.
1st Gassan Wine Soleil Levant Koshu Sur Lie 2018 2200 yen + tax
It is made from 100 % Koshu grown in Shonai Yamgata.
The area is the northern limit of the growing of Koshu grape.
I like the ripe fruits and nice minerals.
Especially, I was impressed in the pure and massive acidity.
It is a very fine and unique Koshu Wine.
It was very good for sushi today.
2nd Kusunoki Winery Pinot Noir 2018 3600 yen + tax
I bought this one at the winery in April 2019.
I felt delicate fruits, good spice hint and elegant tannins.
I also felt some voluptuous nuance, which is the typical character of Kusunoki Pinot Noir.
I felt a good body, too, even though alcohol degree is low, only 11%.
The back label says ” The best drink is from late 2011.”
I enjoyed this one very much even the time is earlier.
