In 1923, Chuo Budoshu was established in Katsunuma, the birthplace of the wine industry in Japan.

Grace Wineries efforts to make good quality wine, while taking into account the climate and the soils as well as using modern techniques, are evident in this stunning example of the Koshu grape.

This example of the local grape variety is left sur-lie (on the lees) for 5 months before racking to increase the richness, producing a fine wine reminiscent of many Italian or French white wines.

Fleshy on the nose; rich with lemons and kiwis and tropical notes. Bright lemon acidity on the palate with a perfumed edge and oodles of soft tropical fruit. Great texture and balance with great length. Reminiscent of a great Albarino or Cru Chablis.

Serve: Delicious with most Japanese dishes, stronger flavour dishes of fish and poultry

Producer Information

Grace Winery, (company name 'Chuo Budoshu' in Japanese) was established in 1923 in Katsunuma, the birthplace of Japan's wine industry and today the wine hub of Japan. Our brand name "Grace Wine" is named after the Three Graces. We believe good wines come from grapes which bear the characters of the place they originated from. We make constant effort to improve how grapes are grown in order to enhance their quality. After successful attempts as pioneers to adopt Vertical Shoot Positioning for Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay in 1990 in order to enhance flavour concentration, we expanded our vineyard holdings and applied the same techniques to Merlot and Petit Verdot. In 2002, we added to our portfolio the Misawa vineyard which employs the same grape-growing philosophy. Our Koshu grapes, the signature grape variety of Japan, are grown along the mountainous area of the region, which bring to us wines with more concentration and minerality. It is Grace's vision to always bring the highest quality wines and the joy of wine drinking to you.

Shigekazu Misawa
President of Grace winery
