Grace Koshu Hishiyama Single Vineyard 2022

$75.00 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.

Much like Jeff Buckley (the album ‘Grace’ sprung to mind), you’ll either love it, or it’ll leave you scratching your head wondering what all the fuss is about.
A slight smokiness, melon rind, nashi pear, green tea perfume. It’s flinty, fine-boned too, offering plenty of crunch and delicate flavours of ripe green apple, lemon peel, and a lovely mouth-perfume that puts me in mind of jasmine green tea, or something along those lines. The finish is precise and long, and gee it’s such a refreshing and interesting wine. It’s not cheap, but it is beautiful. I’m touch and go for 95 points on this 2022. I love it.
