Grace Wine Toriibira Vineyard 2015
Koshu, Japan's indigenous vitis vinifera white grape variety, has been growing in Japan for over 1,000 years.
The grapes used are grown at 450m altitude in the elevated Toriibira district of Katsunuma in Yamanashi prefecture. Clear with no signs of fault. Bright pale yellow. Medium intense fruity aromas of tangerine and summer mikan, spicy aromas of white pepper and ginger, earthy mineral aromas and toasty aromas of oak, all together giving a impression of complexity. A powerful attack on the palate, bone dry with a tightly knitted acidity which gives structure to the wine. A long finish with some astringency, and a slight bitter aftertaste. A white wine with both finesse and power.
