So easy to drink, yet so engaging.
About The Wine
The Gris de Koshu is an ample, textured version of the Koshu grape which was inspired by the voluptuous Pinot Gris wines of Alsace.
Koshu is typically a little reserved, a quietly complex variety that inspires contemplation. This was built to be delicious on release and ready for early consumption.
The 2012 vintage of this wine was the first Asian wine to win both a Regional trophy and a Gold medal in the Decanter Asia Wine Awards. It's an important cuveé for Japan, one of the first Japanese wines to announce their quality to the world.
About Grace Vineyard
Grace Wine was founded by Chotaro Misawa in the Katsunuma village in 1923.
Today, the wines are made by his great, great granddaughter, Ayana, who has worked in top wineries from Australia to France in an effort to increase her wine knowledge and bring a higher level of expertise to her family's winery.
Grace implements a more progressive viticultural program than is the norm in Japan, which has made them the benchmark for quality in the small Japanese winemaking community. These are elegant wines that speak quietly and beautifully of a culture that is just coming of age on the world stage for wine.
