Grace Winery Koshu Kayagatake Yamanashi 2019

Lovely expression of fresh melon and apple fruit with
hints of fennel and wet stone through to a bone dry,
salty and mouthwatering finish.


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. The grapes for this
wine are grown in distinctively volcanic soils with good drainage, providing excellent
growing conditions for the Koshu grape. The vineyard has a cooler aspect, 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 grapes were gently pressed in a pneumatic press before being fermented at
controlled temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the naturally occurring acidity
and pure fruit flavours of the Koshu variety. The wine was matured in stainless steel
tanks, where it spent three months on its fine lees adding richness and complexity.


Tasting Note
The freshness and elegance of this wine is quite remarkable. Layered aromas of
green apple, lime, gooseberry combine with notes of lilac, camomile and delicate
spice. Bone dry and smooth on the palate with cool-climate acidity providing
refreshing balance to the rich fruit. This is youthful and energetic.
