Decanter World Wine Awards 2016 Platinum medal and the Best Asia in white wine category Koshu,Japan’s indigenous vitis vinifera white grape variety, has been growing in Japan for over 1,000 years. Grace Koshu is the benchmark of Koshu made from grapes grown in the Katsunuma village in Yamanashi prefecture. Crystal clear. Light lemon yellow with a green tinge. Quite forceful aromas giving an opulent first impression. Green apple, pear, white flower, fennel leaves, and a mineralic tone reminiscent of seashells. Smooth and gentle on the palate, dry, with flavours consistent with aromas, well-integrated tendering acidity, all giving a coherent whole. A wine in great balance with a youthful elegance.
