Grace - Koshu Kayagatake 2012-13Japan
Appearance; Almost transparent, brilliantly clear
Nose; Fresh, delicate grapefruit and lemon aromas with a white floral touch and nuances of lemongrass.
Palate; Dry, crisp, delicate, light-bodied, fresh and fruity. Soft and subtle in the mouth, lively citrus acidity, balanced by a spicy note of white pepper, which lingers in the mouth. A pure, ephemeral sensation.
Grace Koshu is our signature white wine. We let it rest on its lies for five months before bottling, which gives an extra dimension of richness, and which enables the preservation of its delicate aromas. The fine and delicate characteristics of the wine makes it the perfect match with all kinds of Japanese cuisine.
Grace Koshu is also referred to as a representative wine of Japan in the 5th edition of the The World Atlas of Wine co-authored by the veritable Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson.
Robert Parker in the US, various Masters of Wines and Jamie Goode in the UK have shown enthusiastic appreciation of our wine, as well the Financial Times in the UK.
