Gekkeikan Plum Wine Japan NV
As a fan of Fu-ki Plum Wine, I was anxious to try another. Although this class is in the 'too sweet to have often' category for me, every now and then that dessert craving comes 'round. Most of the flavour is reminiscent of a cream sherry, which was a surprise but not altogether unwelcomed. There's a fruity finish however, which says "sugary plum" not found in any grape. I do like it a lot, but miss the cherry-almond found in Fu-ki. Gekkeikan Plum bridges the gap between sherry and Fu-ki, thereby earning a distinct place on the rack.
I am a cheap wine fan and not good with bitter wines. This one went down smooth unlike many many others. I say it passed my picky palate, lol.
I am not normally a wine drinker. In fact I do not drink that often. But this wine just has something that draws me to it. The bite of the tartness, the fact that I am able to taste the Plum. I am sure most would say my palate is not refined but I am unable to detect the flavor hints in normal wine due to the alcohol. I can enjoy this straight or 2 oz's in 8oz's of Ginger ale for a wonderful mixed drink.
