Kobori Sake Brewery Long Liver Kaga Plum Wine 12-year-aged 720mL
Kaga 12 is definitely a plum wine that makes people love and hate... I love it, of course, the top taste enjoyment brought by this wine after 12 years of aging, but on the other hand, many customers have tasted it in small shops. After drinking, I have experienced the peak of plum wine, and since then I have dismissed other plum wines and lost the desire to explore all kinds of life.
The material used is the same series of Hokuriku-special high-end varieties-Hongyingmei, which is also called "Glorious Plum" because of the red ripe surface of the fruit.
Compared with the general high-quality varieties such as Nanxiang plum, it has more amino acids, richer umami flavor, and full-bodied flavor, which is very suitable for long-term maturation and high-quality prunes.
Cultivation is extremely difficult. The same part of the branches only bear fruit every three years, and the yield is low. Therefore, it is suitable for plums because they are too precious, and they are not common in brewing.
Let me talk about the taste of this wine first. Pour the wine into a glass, the aroma of ripe plum comes from, and the sourness of plum is mouth-watering. The taste of the wine is mellow, the plum flavor is sweet, and the alcohol content is 15%. It has been completely domesticated by the years of 12 years, and it is almost impossible to detect any alcohol sensation. The silky liquor slipped into the throat. After swallowing it, the plum flavor slowly filled the mouth without a half-sourness or sweetness. It made people want to refill without knowing it. Half a bottle of works.
