I have this strange relationship with these plum wines from Japan. They tend to be syrupy, one-dimensional, and Japanese . . . but if these wines are done well, they're not bad at all. Balanced sweetness, good acid, intense plum flavours - the big question is what to drink it with. I had it with hotpot, and with our seafood, simply divine. Of course, one glass was more than enough, but that one glass showed me a great time.
