Grace Koshu Toriibira Vineyard Private Reserve 2021
Clear and faultless. Brilliant pale yellow colour with a grey hue. The nose is rich, with aromas of fruits such as golden delicious apple, yellow peach and pear, spicy aromas from cloves and white pepper, and toastiness, giving impression of complexity. On sipping, a mellow attack, dry, with rounded acidity, fruity flavours reminiscent of aromas expand on the palate with a long finish. This is a white wine that combines elegance and power.
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.
