Made from Delaware grapes grown in their own vineyards in Kashiwara, Osaka, a grape-growing region with a history of more than 100 years. The grapes withstood the long rains in July 2020 and ripened quickly in the sunshine of the sunny August, growing into powerful grapes with a high sugar and acid content. The grapes were gently pressed, spontaneously fermented and stored in stainless steel tanks for 11 months, and then blended with approximately 8% of orange wine, which was also made from the grapes fermented with wild yeast and stored for 11 months. The result is a richer wine with a gentle, unique Delaware aroma from the skin. The label expresses the image of the best liquid soaking into the body with the weightless feeling of being on a swing. The light pouring down from the sun and the floating orbs express the fresh fruity taste. The fountain of wine beneath the body and the rich nature that surrounds it expresses the charm of this wine, which is deep but also light.
