This cuvĂ©e from the cousins Mittnacht is designed specifically for the Asian market--Christophe's wife is Japanese--and because of this goes better with sushi and sashimi than almost any other wine we can image. The name comes from the Japanese art of inking a fish to create a stamp. Clean, with fresh acidity, apple skin notes and a hint of perfume.
