Description
 
Koshu is a Japanese native grape variety which matches sashimi and tempura with salt. Grace Wine, (company name “Chuo Budoshu” in Japanese) was established in 1923 in Katsunuma, the birthplace of Japan’s wine industry and today the wine hub of Japan. 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.

Clear and faultless, bright pale yellow. On the nose are aromas reminiscent of citrus fruits and their skins, acacia type white flowers, spiciness of coriander seeds and stone-like minerality. The smooth texture on the palate accompanied by intense dryness and well delineated acidity is impressive. The palate shows a purity typical of wines from the high altitude Hishiyama region with a hint of coolness. A classy wine.
