Judges Comments A tinge of green straw on the eyes. Subtle tones of candied musk and white floral aromas clearly present on the nose. The elegance and restraint on the palate is very focused on creating a clean lemony finish with plenty of freshness.

Hasumi Farm is one of Japan’s smallest wineries, located in Nagano prefecture. The area has a great environment for grape growing with long daylight hours, high diurnal temperature variations and low rainfall. Weather conditions are comparable to that of Champagne and northern Burgundy. The Winery was started in 2005 and after careful planting of new vines saw it’s first results in 2009.

Judges Comments A clear attempt to produce a wine of interest. Flavours of sour cherries and cola are expressed through a vibrant palate that has plenty of fruit weight and a crunchy level of acidity. Possibly some whole bunch maceration was used to add some extra flare in the glass whilst boosting the tannins. BRONZE MEDAL: 86 points
