Grace Koshu Hishiyama Single Vineyard 2021

$83.00 inc. GST

Clear and faultless. Brilliant pale yellow with green tinge. Aromas of citrus fruits such as lemon and lime, notes of white flower such as acacia, spicy aromas from coriander and cumin, and mineral notes reminiscent of minerals. Smooth and dry on the palate. Citrus fruit flavours such as lemon and lime, mineral notes hinting mineral and a firm, elegant acidity form the backbone of the wine.


Situated at the highest altitude in Katsunuma Town (500m-600m), the Hishiyama area is characterised by complex and diverse soils, including large granite formations scattered throughout the area. This is a region particularly cherished by Kazuo Misawa, the third-generation owner. The wine’s lively acidity and smoky minerality faithfully express the characteristics of the region. We put a rain shade on every bunch of grapes. After harvesting by hand, grapes from specific vineyards are selected, followed by fermentation and maturation in stainless steel tanks.

“Grown on a single vineyard sitting at 500m above sea level, the highest altitude of Katsunuma village and known for its cool climate and complex soil profiles of granitic elements.  This is the palest, most delicate and flinty of the 2018 Koshu wines. Flinty and smoky, white flower perfume, lime and apple, a faint whiff of cut fennel or fern or something like that. It’s delicate, flinty and subtly smoky, again the subdued lime and apple flavour, cool acidity, all the river pebble texture and a long finish. My word this is a lovely wine of delicacy and interest”_ Gary Walsh 94 Points
