Kita-no-Novo is a classically styled sparkling wine, close to its Champenoise roots, made with careful attention to detail and in accordance with techniques developed by the Champenoise winemakers of northern France.
The grapes involved are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, from the vineyards of the Kimura family, located in Yoichi, Hokkaido. The grapes, fermented “a la mode champenoise”, produce a crisp, gently aromatic sparkling wine show-casing grapefruit, pear, honey, yogurt, and firestone notes.
Try this with fresh oyster, croque-monsieur, Tartine de rillettes, or Brie cheese.
