  • The gentian (Rindo in Japanese) is a purple flower evoking the color of this wine, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite  Verdot and Malbec.

  • The name of the town where Kenzo was born, Asuka signifies a bright future and hope for tomorrow. The first Cabernet Franc from the estate, this has been selected specifically for the vintage.

  • Meaning “Purple”, Murasaki is a robust blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot selected from certain vineyard blocks and specific barrels.

  • Named “Indigo” for a color whose significance is profound in Japanese culture, this is a Cabernet Sauvignon possessed of all the stature the wine is renowned for.

ASUKA

cabernet franc

The result of an unprecedented harvest. Asuka is Kenzo Estate’s first true Cabernet Franc bottling. Its glorious red hue frames a palate of plush tannins and bright raspberry fruit. The distinctly floral perfume hints at fresh plum and white pepper. We are delighted to present this unique offering.
