Yamanashi de Grace

VINTAGE 2019

The wine is based on Muscat Bailey A from contract growers in the Hosaka district, Nirasaki city, at the foot of Mt. Kayagatake in northwestern Yamanashi prefecture, blended with estate bordeaux varieties from Misawa Vineyard. The wine is stored in French oak barrels (for about 8 months), followed by a well-balanced assemblage in a manner so as to maximise the varietal characteristics of the respective varieties.
By employing meticulously grown, high quality vinifera grapes from the Misawa Vineyard, the wine is fragrant and full of fruit flavours, characterized by varietal purity, and concentrated fruit with an elegant touch.
The soft texture goes well with food of all kinds and is perfect with Japanese, Western and Chinese dishes.
An approachable wine that expresses the region of Yamanashi.

2019 Vintage
The growing season was light in rain with plenty of sunshine, smoothly promoting growth. July was rainy and cloudy, and maturity slowed down, but thanks to the good weather at the end of August, the delay in the summer was made up for. There was little damage from the autumn typhoon, and we were able to wait for full maturity before harvesting.

Tasting Note

Bright medium ruby colour with a purple rim.
A rich nose with fruity aromas such as fresh blueberry and plum, floral aromas such as rose and lavender, subdued oak, accented with soft spice aromas such as nutmeg and clove.
Dry on the palate, fine tannins and supple acidity very elegantly expressed, with flavours of blueberry and rose expand in the mouth. On the whole, a refreshing wine characterized by varietal purity.

Food pairing

Stewed Chicken Giblets
In Yamanashi, “stewed chicken giblets” is a popular side dish for soba noodles.
Muscat Bailey A goes well with soy sauce and sweet-spicy stir-fried Yamanashi local cuisine. It will work too if you sprinkle grated hard cheese on the dish.

Minestrone
Tomato soup, if mixed well with the refreshingly berry-scented and soft-tannined Yamanashi de Grace, can enhance the original flavours of the ingredients. The spicy flavours will leave a rich aftertaste.
