I almost died

Jul. 17

I weeded my garden.

It was a very, very hot day.





I almost died.


After I came back from the hell, I cooked dinner, Temaki-Sushi.






Because I got very fine fishes, I opened some very fine wines.





1st Rue de Vin Sauvignon Blanc 2009

I kept this one at my cellar for a long time.

It is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grown in the estate vineyard in Tomi Nagano.

It is the third vintage of the winery.

Amazing! It’s a super fine Sauvignon Blanc.





I felt still very fresh fruits, deep acidity and beautiful minerals.

Also, it has super complex flavor thanks of the long mature.

It’s a great Sauvignon Blanc.

I picked up my phone and called Mr. Koyama, the owner of the winery.

We talked many thing for a long time.



2nd Kamihoro Wine Kaze 2017

It is made from mainly Pinot Noir with several grape varieties grown in the estate winery in Iwamizawa Hkkaido.

Also, it’s a great wine.

I felt very elegant fruits aroma, very charming red berries, silky tannin and comfortable after taste.

I think this one is one of the best Pinot Noir in Japan.

The products is very little.

I wanted to buy this one more.

Unfortunately, it was out of stock.
