This is one of a set of 3 wines from Kobe Winery to coincide with the annual Kobe Luminarie (the other two are red and rose wines).

The Kobe Luminarie is held every year in December in Kobe to commemorate the Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995 where over 6000 people tragically died.

The Luminarie is a beautiful light festival in downtown Kobe, and about 3-5 million people visit it each year for the two weeks it runs.

The Kobe Luminarie White wine has a light fresh nose like a chardonnay.
Slightly bitter on the palate with a hint of sweetness too, but only a hint.

Not too bad to be honest. Better than the Rose and Red.
