Muscat Bailey A is a variety created in 1927 by Zenbei Kawakami, “the father of Japanese viticulture”. The hybrid is a cross between bailey and muscat Hamburg. The variety does well in Japan’s cold winters and humid summers. In terms of style, it has forward red berry fruits and fairly low tannins. Reminiscent of gamay, it is an easy-going, approachable wine. Bright strawberry and raspberry confectioned fruit. Medium body with soft tannins and acidity.
