Grace Koshu Misawa Vineyard Akeno 2020
The aromas of fresh fruits reminiscent of white peach and pear, of spices like white pepper and clove, of flowers such as jasmine and honeysuckle and of sweet scent suggesting caramel, all melted-in in a complex but graceful manner. On the palate, smooth and voluminous, and the refreshing, umami-filled acidity gives firmness. The finish shows purity resulting from gentle pressing.

GRACE WINE – Yamanashi
Established in 1923 in Katsunuma, this family-owned winery established by Chotaro Misawa is now run by his fourth-generation successor Shigekazu Misawa, whose daughter Ayana is in charge of winemaking. The main-winery is still in Katsunuma and produces primarily Koshu. Since 1990 the family has been concentrating its efforts on improvements in grape production. The winery’s goal is a wine reflecting a unique combination of soil, sunlight, and altitude. It has been a pioneer in replacing conventional Japanese viniculture with vertical shoot positioning to produce a more richly flavoured grape. The goal is wines that are eco-friendly, with a natural, gallant and quietly elegant taste.
