Katsunuma is Japan’s top Koshu producing region situated at the eastern end of the Kofu Basin.
The Katsunuma area is an alluvial fan with widely distributed well-drained soil, and has been suitable for viticulture since
ancient times. The characteristic intricate terrain and complex soils give rise to vines that show the distinguishing sense of
place.
The Toriibira district of Katsunuma, which our current owner, Shigekazu Misawa highly regards, is located on the southwestfacing
slope at an altitude of 450 meters, and has been regarded as famous vineyard areas of Katsunuma since ancient times
because grapes ripen well there. Koshu grown on the hillside is naturally limited in yield compared to grapes grown on
flatland. The grapes from Toriibira are even more condensed with smaller bunches. These concentrated grapes were the
reason why Toriibira has been in the limelight since our predecessor’s era.
The soil mixed with gravel is well-drained, resulting in wines with intense fruit and backbone, all due to the patience in
waiting for the grapes to mature succeeded by hand harvest, and the careful work of putting on each and every bunch an
umbrella for protection against rain.
The “Toriibira Vineyard Private Reserve” Koshu uses not only grapes from the Toriibira area but the carefully selected top
lot, followed by fermentation in neutral French oak barrels and maturation in stainless steel tanks. The wine has soft, elegant
acidity and complexity, with a long finish.

Expressing elegance and power, a rich aromatic profile of fruit; yellow apple, yellow peach, and pear fruit, as well as spice and toasty white pepper. The attack is round and dry, with a mellow acidity. On the palate, the fruitiness is as luscious as the aroma followed by an immensely enjoyable long finish.
