Lovely expression of fresh melon and nashi pear with hints

Producer Note
Grace Wine was established in 1923, in the Katsunuma province, the birthplace of the
Japanese wine industry. Committed to the belief that great wine is made in the
vineyard, they were the first to research and introduce European training and pruning
methods introducing such as using long cordon training and Vertical Shoot Positioning
in 1990. The wines are made in a modern way to retain the delicate characteristics of
this individual and exciting grape variety.


Vineyard
Made from Japan's most important indigenous grape variety: Koshu. The grapes for this
wine are grown on the foothills of Mt. Kayagatake from estate managed vineyards at
an altitude of 400 to 700 metres. The vines are planted in distinctively volcanic soils with
good drainage, providing excellent growing conditions. The vineyard has a cool
climate but also abundant sunshine, allowing the slow maturation of the grapes over a
long growing season. Traditional trellis pruning has been cast aside in favour of a
modern long cordon training system which helps to control yields; concentrating
flavours and sugars to balance the high acidity that occurs naturally in this variety. The
grapes were hand-harvested at optimum maturity.


Winemaking
The winemaking philosophy emphasises preserving the healthy state of the grapes by
ensuring harvest took place at the optimum time through appropriate analysis, rapid
crushing and anaerobic juice handling in order to produce clean, natural and pure
wines, bringing out the potential in the fruit. Fermentation took place in stainless steel
tanks at carefully controlled temperatures, to ensure the purity of the fruit and the terroir
was fully expressed.


Tasting Note
Elegant aromas of green apple, grapefruit, chamomile and white pepper lead to a
smooth, bone dry palate. This is a delicate yet tense white wine, with a lively acidity that
gives beautiful structure through to a long mouthwatering finish.
