Premium plum wine brewed with 3-year aged sake. The sake is brewed in traditional Kimoto style that involves intense manual labor work to mix the rice mash for delicate flavors. With 3-year aging, the sake takes on a bit of nectar-like sweetness and texture. And soaking and resting high-quality plum in this aged sake creates these pronouced rich flavors.
