Whenever we get Kaze no Mori Akitsuho 657, it sells out in days. Yucho Shuzo is staunch about their namas, releasing only the freshest and liveliest on the shelves. I love the gentle pear aroma accented by the sizzle of CO2, sweetness of muscat grapes, and mild acidity. On the label, the characters Kaze no Mori (“Wind of the Woods”) painted by a female calligraphy artist, are superimposed over the branches of a tree. This tree can be seen from the brewery on Mt. Katsuragi, where the hardest water in Japan flows underground. Chill and pop this open for the salad or crudite course before the the main course!
