All the way from Hokkaido’s Tsurumura winery, this expression is part of the winery’s Otaru range. As Hokkaido’s climate is less humid and cooler than the rest of Japan, the area is suitable for grape cultivation. The venture into Pinot Noir is a rather new one by the winery, which has focused mainly on German and Austrian
varieties over the years.
Featuring a light body of red fruits, wood, and subtle vanilla, this is one of the most balanced and affordable Pinot Noir expressions to come out of Japan.
