"Inspired by our winemaker, Heidi Barrett, created by Estate Winemaker Marc Nanes, ren is born from a beautiful, abundant Semillon harvest in 2017. As vintners, we took a chance with sparkling. On its debut this month in Japan & the US, guests agreed: ren is a delicate, bright, impressive wine that lives up to our high standards. After 10 years of presenting wines from Kenzo Estate, we are proud to offer this new wine."
- Kenzo & Natsuko Tsujimoto, Kenzo Estate
The delicate lotus flower, ren in Japanese, inspires the name of this new sparkling wine. Ren is a symbol of purity and grace in the heart and soul. Similarly, ren Sparkling Semillon delivers pure, clean and refreshing flavors on the palate. Its delicate bubbles display a gentle tranquility in the glass. Produced in the Methode Champenoise, this is a wine that is alive and vibrant in its youth, and will provide a pleasant pop with years of bottle aging in its future.

"Powerful and elegant mango, pineapple and fresh peach flavors are mouthwatering and intense, with a touch of lemon blossom, a thread of vibrant acidity and a crisp finish, where citrus zest and white pepper details play out."
