Cherry Blossom Wine – SAKURA (桜のワイン)

By Brian Lemay 6 comments

Guys! Today we are going to drink some Sakura Wine. And as mentioned Sakura is the Cherry Blossom. And it is in season right now. Between end of March – Beginning of April. People are going Hanami, which is Sakura Blossom viewing. So they basically have picnics underneath the cherry blossom trees, looking up and get drunk. I got my hands on a Sakura Wine. It is 100% Koshu. Koshu grape I am really excited about this one. It is a Rosè, or at least supposed to be a Rosè. But it looks pretty pail to me… But the bottle is really cute, it got the design of sakura flowers/blossoms on the outside… And inside is what really makes me excited… We also have some of those cherry blossoms inside. On the label it says they are edible… so…we are gonna.. …get a little taste Sakura no wain (Sakura wine)… here we go! It is a wine that should be consumed pretty early. It is a seasonal wine. So fresh… …and nice. And hopefully it will be delishioso. Ok, let’s see… Ok! Let’s have a look at the… …color! A slight, slight, hint of like pink in it. But it is SO pale. So let’s give it a schniff. This smells sweet. We are talking red berries in it… Some floral aspects… Not that intense Just peasant… pleasant on the nose! Let’s also give it a taste. mmh! It barely touched my tongue. And I felt it was sweet… It’s not heavy sweet…but it’s sweet, y’know what I mean? It taste… like strawberry sorbet Well first you get the sweetness… Then you have a watery sensation… Serving this really really cold with a dessert I think that is gonna be really really good Alcohol percentage … Barely noticeable! It’s like juice to me! A sweet juice. Let’s see here… Yes! It’s 5% alcohol in this But I like it! I like it. I like it for what it is… A sweet wine that is supposed to be juicy, fresh and it is all that. I like it! Final pour! Let’s see… Maybe we’ll get some of those… flowers with us… C’mon! *Oh! Oh! OooOooooh!*

The bottle design looks really cool. Gonna grab one by the store when I got the chance. Not wasting this opportunity of a short term stay in Japan.
