2021 Grace Gris de Koshu
Brilliant water like colour with a faint greenish tinge around the edges. Delicate pear and spiced apple aromas mix with hints of lime juice and flinty mineral like notes. Fleshy pear, red apple and lime fruits grace the palate underscored by stony mineral elements. Finishes dry with crisp acidity and a vivacious aftertaste.
This wine’s 2012 vintage won a groundbreaking Gold medal for Japanese wines in the 2013 Decanter Asia Wine Awards. Fermented in stainless steel tanks with no lees contact. A lovely nose of Nashi pear, white peach, orange peel and clove. Well balanced with refreshing acidity and great finesse. Pairs perfectly with typical Japanese cuisine featuring savoury and umami notes. Drink 2023-2025.
