Koshu F.O.S. is a powerful, idiosyncratic wine made from Japan’s own Koshu grape variety. Fermented on skins like a red wine (hence “FOS”), this white wine isn’t really white at all. It displays a copper robe, an opening ‘comment’ to be followed by baked apple, spicy aromas of cinnamon, fig, and walnut. In the mouth this wine is robust, with plenty of fruit and spice, and soft tannin.
As an accompaniment to food this wine is most at home with similarly robust dishes, from chicken stew to tripe; it is also exceptional with strongly-flavored cheeses.
