Grace Wine Private Reserve Koshu 2018

The Grace Wine Private Reserve is made from Japan's most important indigenous grape variety, Koshu. The grapes for this wine are grown at 500 metres altitude in the elevated Hishiyama district of Katsunama in the Yamanashi prefecture. At this elevation, the cooler aspect allows for a slow maturation of the grapes over a long growing season. The vines are grown in distinctively volcanic soils with good drainage, providing excellent growing conditions for the Koshu grape. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and then the wine was left on its lees for three months adding weight on the palate and concentrating the flavours. Pure, sublimely crisp and mineral in style, this wine is fresh and elegant with subtle notes of citrus, grapefruit, Golden Delicious apple and white pear. Dry, with a lively palate of crisp, ripe fruits and a charming acidity. A lovely expression of the delicate elegance of the Koshu grapes.
