Wine Entry : BEK-SE JU (Korean)


Thought I’d introduce something different today. This bottle of ginseng wine is only available from Korea, (not surprisingly), it is a relatively inexpensive wine in Korea and you can find it in convenient stores and restaurants. It costs about US$ 6. It is also a health tonic and is well suited to accompany their signature dish of Ginseng Chicken Soup or Seafood.
Smell : Light fragrant ginseng, not overpowering

Taste : Delicate acidity ginseng flavours with a warm heartfelt finish.

Description on bottle : Korean traditional wine BEK-SEJU which is brewed with unique method and valuable 12 herbs. ‘Bek Se’ means 100 years old. It doesn’t refer to the age of the wine but the health benefit this wine offeres.

    Hi desdragon!

    Thanks for dropping by my blog!

    Wow you guys are like really serious wine drinkers!

    Personally I prefer beer than wine. Find the taste of wine too fruity so far. And I understand it should be served at room temperature. Another reason why I prefer ice chilled beer...Shiok!@!


    Hey can I add a link to your blog in mine?

    Fishman...thanks for leaving a comment and sharing your drink preference.

    Ice Chilled white wines are also very delightfully refreshing. You should try it sometime :)

    Sure go ahead and make a link to my blog, I will be glad to do likewise
