ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
Château Mercian Moegi
A precise blend of Chardonnay, a European variety, and Koshu, a Japanese variety, that achieves a smart balance between lively acidity, minerality, and rich fruitiness. A perfect blend of European and Japanese traditions; like Monet painting in Ukiyo-e style, Vuitton and Murakami, or French pastries in Japan. (If you've been, you know.) The Koshu grapes are taken from three different Prefectures; while this may tone down the expressiveness of terroir, it results in bringing out the best qualities of the Koshu grape in general. Aged partly in stainless steel and partly in oak. Moe (pronounced moe-eh) means a light, newly-out leaf green, and represents the characteristics of Koshu, while Gi (usually pronounced "ki") means yellow, and represents the characteristics of Chardonnay. From the Quality Series.
