Serena・Extra Brut

VINTAGE 2016

Serena is an elegant traditional method (bottle-fermented) sparkling wine made from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grown in the Misawa Vineyard located at Akeno town, Hokuto City, Yamanashi prefecture; and Chardonnay from the Hishiyama producing area which boasts the highest altitude vineyards in the region. The wine is a single vintage extra brut (dry), went through 36 months of bottle maturation, followed by gentle manual riddling on racks and then disgorgement, bottle by bottle.
At Grace, sparkling wines are made with the same bottle fermentation process as used in Champagne.
Wines are matured in bottles for 3 to 5 years as a vintage wine.
Serena Extra Brut is the second wine of the prestige cuvée of Grace “Blanc de Blanc” (5 years of bottle maturation).
To ensure a creamy and fine mousse in all of Grace’s sparkling wines, riddling through to dosage are all done by hands, manual work that we cherish.

2016
Temperature was higher than usual from the start of Spring, leading to historically early budding. Temperatures remain high above norm with plenty of sunshine hours. The rainy season fared well with lesser than usual precipitation. Although the autumnal rain frontier arrived much sooner than expected in Mid-August, the grapes were harvested in time thanks to the warmer and sunnier start in Spring.

Tasting Note

Bright and perfectly clear, pale lemon yellow with a green tinge. Plenty of attractive aromas of fresh pears, white peaches, yellow peaches, honeysuckle, rosemary, clove, and mineral reminiscent of wet stones. Smooth on the palate and dry. Persistent mousse from bottle fermentation. Palate same as nose, finished with umami from the lengthy bottle maturation. A sparkling wine with elegant flavours and freshness, echoing its pure white grape variety composition.
