Hitomi - 2017 AWA Rouge Pet Nat
Japanese natural wine. Did someone say unicorn?
In Japan's Yamagata prefecture, Hitomi Winery (led by Naoki Yamada) produces incredibly nuanced wines that sing of purity and patience. This dreamy pet nat is 100% Campbell – a sweet/sour Korean grape variety – sourced from Iwate prefecture. Carbonic Maceration and naturally fermented in bottle, with no added sulphur. TBH we didn't get enough bottles of this to try it ourselves, so you're the guinea pig...
