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 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.

This plum wine is made from the choicest plums from Wakayama, Japan. Its subtly sweet, natural plum flavor has just a hint of tartness and is truly delightful. Enjoy chilled, on-the-rocks, in various cocktails or on desserts.
