Tasting Note

Pure, sublimely crisp and mineral in style, this wine is fresh and elegant with subtle notes of citrus fruit and white pear. The palate, like the nose shows white fruits and spicy white pepper notes with a savoury note on the finish.

Producer Note

Grace Winery was established in 1923, in the Katsunuma province, the birthplace of the Japanese wine industry. Committed to the belief that great wine is made in the vineyard, they were the first to research and introduce European training and pruning methods introducing such as using long cordon training and Vertical Shoot Positioning in 1990. The wines are made in a modern way to retain the delicate characteristics of this individual and exciting grape variety.

Vineyard

Traditional trellis pruning has been cast aside in favour of a modern long cordon training system which helps to control yields, concentrating flavours and sugars to balance the high acidity that naturally occurs in this variety.

Winemaking

The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and then the wine was left on its lees for three months adding weight on the palate and concentrating the flavours.

Serving Suggestion

The perfect partner for Sushi platters.
