2018 Kunoh 'Table 30'
Yuki Nakano is a flying winemaker, a recent phenomenon indulged by that of young vignerons who, instead of committing to one plot, chase seasons all over the world. They decide what they work with, who they work with and what they produce, to an ever intriguing array of results. It’s an exercise in creativity and freedom as a winemaker, less about the beauty of growing fruit themselves. He floats mostly between Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
The Table 30 is 90% Pinot Blanc and 10% Riesling. Co-fermented in steel, aged in steel for ten months. The result is a lightening bolt of acidity, fresh and firm. Lemons, limes, magnolias in the morning. It’s a wine that lovers of toeing the line between pleasure and pain will enjoy.
