Brilliant pale straw yellow. Rich stone fruit aromas of golden delicious apple and white peach, honeysuckle, white pepper, hint of earthiness, and a slight toasty nuance from oak. Smooth attack on the palate, dry, medium body. Succulent fruity flavours of ripe golden delicious apple and white peach, rounded acidity, clove, ginger, a trace of astringency, and medium alcohol. Enjoy a long elegant finish.
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.
