What Is Japanese-Style Plum Wine?
Plum wine is a traditional drink called ume-shu, enjoyed by Japanese people through the centuries. With the intensity of ripened fruits and rich caramel notes is originally created by combining shochu — white liquor — and ume, the special varietal of Japanese plum.
Kinsen Plum is Takara’s own rendition of the traditional tawny elixir ume-shu. It is perfected by blending California white wine and ume-based flavors of the renowned plum species cultivated in Japan. Kinsen Plum is a bold and complex plum wine, ideal for serving as an aperitif or a dessert wine.
