Nothing better than a hamper filled with goodies, some fine wine and an eclectic and esteemed guest list from the world of wine…
On the 26th January, we continued our food matching with Wines of Japan series that commenced two years ago; since that time, the profile, diversity and availability of Japanese wine in the UK have increased, with national importers such as Boutinot, Amathus and Hallgarten importing a range of Japanese wines. Koshu, Japan’s delicate, native white grape, remains the calling card of Japanese wine, but there is more to discover from different varieties and prefectures. Japanese wine is now taken very seriously by Japanese wine consumers (a discerning bunch), and this is reflected in the dynamism and quality of contemporary Japanese wine.
