Distinctive. Unreal wine.
About The Wine
This wine is the finest expression of the indigenous variety, Koshu, from the star producer of Japan's budding wine scene.
Hand-picked from a pebble-ridden vineyard at 450m altitude, this cool, calm, textural white wine demands quiet contemplation.
A selection of the finest fruit from this site and ageing in a combination of oak barrels and stainless gives this a little added body over the straight Toriibira Vineyard Selection.
It's a fascinating wine, nuanced and delicate and lovely to drink.
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.
