“Vin” of Shugoro

A sweet wine that the writer Shugoro Yamamoto loved drinking and commended highly during his lifetime. Shugoro’s wine journey began when he was still a young literary man. In his long journey through life, one of the events that tug at his heartstrings was his encounter with this wine. “It’s a wine that doesn’t taste like any of the Japanese grape wines I’ve ever had,” he complimented. Since then, the wine became his longtime favourite.

Using Muscat Bailey A and Koshu, grape varieties unique to Japan, as raw materials, grape spirits (distilled grape liquor) are added during fermentation to stop the sugar conversion process, and the natural sweetness of the grapes remains in the wine. It develops depth in taste from several years’ of barrel aging, and it goes well with chocolate and blue cheese.

From the wines made by our 3rd generation owner up to the present day, it is a family tradition to make the wine through the use of a Solera system, and there is no indication of vintage.

The title on the label is Shugoro’s autograph.

Solera System

Every year, the oldest wine is taken out from the barrel and bottled. They are then replenished by wines from the next younger level.
In the Solera system, new wines are added to old wine in an orderly way, and by using this mechanism, fortified wines with unique personality are created.

Tasting Note

A serene garnet colour with an orange rim.
Aromas are generous and complex, with a potpourri of bouquet from ageing such as dried figs, raisins, dried flowers, and bitter chocolate.
A rounded palate, moderate residual sugars, with flavours reminiscent of the nose, a fortified wine with a unique personality that allows for the enjoyment of its rich fragrances and long finish.
