Wine

Château Mercian Iwasaki Koshu, 75cl

£18.85

Japanese Chablis?

From vineyards owned by the great, great grandsons of the two men who were sent by Mercain to France in 1870 to study grape growing and winemaking, becoming the pioneers of Japanese wine.

Citrus aromas of kabosu and yuzu with notes of white flowers, vanilla, almonds and nuts. With refreshing balanced acidity, rich fruit flavours and minerality spread in the mouth.

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 gravel and clay with good drainage. Harvest took place from late September to early October. Fermentation in oak barrel at between 18-21℃ for approximately 14 days, the wine was aged for 4 months in oak barrel.
