mukumuku

The glorious nectar blessed by the sun, a sweet dessert wine affectionately called muku

Carefully selected blocks of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon produce an intensely perfumed and concentrated juice. The fruit is gently maintained and protected with nets for months after it has reached physiological ripeness, to ensure the health and vitality of the crop over the extended ripening phase. As the sugars increase and the sun turns the skins golden brown, the winemaking staff waits for the perfect moment to harvest the fruit and gently press it to extract this glorious nectar. Fermented slowly at cold temperatures, the result is a delicate wine with intense aromas and honeyed flavors. Muku is a breath of fresh air, delicate to the senses, light on its feet like a ballerina in flight. Lift a glass and be confronted with the soft caress of rose petals, white peach and candied guava. Representing purity and innocence in Japanese, muku is pure euphoria in a bottle, innocent and disarming.

  • The 2013 bottle of muku has not been released.
    The 2013 vintage was a very limited production, poured in the Tasting Room exclusively for guests visiting the winery. Due to a very positive response from visitors, muku was officially released in 2014 as the 7th wine in the Kenzo Estate collection.
