Grace Winery Koshu Hisiyama Private Reserve 2018

The Hisiyama Reserve Koshu from Grace Winery has Ddelightful notes of William pear and melon combined with a delicate and mineral flavour and a long, steely and salivating 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 - Made from Japan's most important indigenous grape variety: Koshu. The grapes for the Hishiyama Private Reserve are grown in a vineyard with a complex granitic soil structure, imparting wonderful mineral characteristics to the final wine. The warm climate promotes healthy grapes with a good phenolic maturity at harvest time. A modern long cordon training system is being used as an alternative to the traditional trellising methods. Significant advances have been made in limiting yields and focussing on canopy management. These endeavours have concentrated flavours and sugars, balancing the high acidity that occurs naturally in this variety.

Winemaking - The fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks to preserve the naturally occurring acidity of the Koshu grape while maintaining the integrity of its pure fruit aromas. The maturation took place in stainless steel tanks, where this wine spent six months on its fine lees, adding a rich complexity to the final wine.

Tasting Note - Ethereal and elegant, similar to the Kayagatake but like the bigger brother - more depth on the nose, this has melon but also peach, minerality in there in spades from the complex granite soils found in the Hishiyama district. Again the remarkable freshness and elegance of the Koshu is present but with a linear, crisp, length with gorgeous mouth watering acidity and wonderful minerals and peaches on the finish - this leans towards a classy Albariño or Cru Chablis.

Serving Suggestion - The perfect pairing for Japanese cuisine, but also with Asian and Western cuisine which is inspired by fresh seafood, light meats and fresh vegetables. This wine has a linear Zen-like quality, which is all about balance.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
