Grace Koshu Toriibira Vineyard Private Reserve 2022

$85.00 inc. GST

Clear and faultless. Brilliant pale yellow colour with a grey hue. The nose is rich, with aromas of fruits such as golden delicious apple, yellow peach and pear, spicy aromas from cloves and white pepper, and toastiness, giving impression of complexity. On sipping, a mellow attack, dry, with rounded acidity, fruity flavours reminiscent of aromas expand on the palate with a long finish. This is a white wine that combines elegance and power.


The Toriibira district is greatly treasured by our fourth generation owner, Shigekazu Misawa. It has a long history, is located at an altitude of 450m, and is revered by local people due to its well-drained gravelly soil, resulting in high quality grapes. The harvested grapes went through further selection and the best lots were fermented in old French oak barrels and further matured in stainless steel tanks. The wine possesses both elegant acidity and complexity with a long finish.

Grace Koshu Toriibira Vineyard Private Reserve 2022
Posted on 26 May 2024. THE WINEFRONT – GARY WALSH

Grown at 450m ASL. This wine is fermented in old French oak, then then matured in stainless steel. This reserve may be a ‘better’ wine than the 2022 Hishiyama Vineyard tasted the other day, though I prefer drinking the no oak number.

A richer, more glossy expression of Koshu, but also has a distinct stony character running through it. Apple, pear, a little spice, some lemon rind and a smattering of something slightly green, like herbs or fern. The finish has plenty grip and freshness with a subtle lemon/quinine bitterness. Complex. And I reckon it will age quite nicely too.
