In Japan's Shiga prefecture, Hitomi Winery (led by Ishimoto san) creates incredibly nuanced wines that sing of purity and patience. This wine features the Steuben grape. Funny name, right. Steuben. It's a hybrid grape originally developed in New York. Anyway, it's lght and dry, very fresh, with watermelon and lychee on the nose. Super fruity with nice soft acidity. Light and dry. Grapes were pressed and naturally fermented for two weeks then slept in tank for three months before being bottled unfined, unfiltered and unsulphured
