Current stock: 18

Chateau Mercian, Koshu, Iwasaki District, Yamanashi, Japan, 2019   

Grape: 100% Koshu - Grown on overhead trellis, the grapes are a bright, lurid pink on the vine. The fruit is not overt, it's all about the combination of texture, acidity and finish and is considered to be part of the organoleptic experience rather than the whole.

This wine is made from Koshu, Japan’s indigenous wine grape which can be traced back to 1186 when it was discovered growing wild at Katsunama in Yamanashi prefecture. Koshu grapes are grown in the Iwasake District of the Yamanashi Prefecture where the soils are gravel and clay with good drainage. Over 40% of all wine grapes grown in Japan are the Koshu variety. Chateau Mercian is the oldest established winery in Japan, starting out in 1870.

Fermented in barrel for 14 days, the wine was also aged for 4 months in oak.

Citrus aromas of kabosu and yuzu with notes of white flowers, vanilla, almonds and hazelnuts. With refreshing balanced acidity, rich fruit flavours and concentrated citrus oil that marries well with the time spent in barrel.

Match with white fish tempura, or grilled chicken with yuzu pepper.
