Kisvin Koshu Reserve

Kisvin

The older, sophisticated sibling of the the Kisvin Koshu. Waiting patiently until late autumn to harvest the Koshu grapes when they are perfectly and thoroughly ripe, Kisvin Koshu Reserve is aged for three months in a barrel. Richer on the palate and rounder and creamier in its feel than its steel-tank younger sister. Full of gravitas, unusual in the light world of Koshu wines, this is a heavy-weight Koshu.

This is a story about a firebrand motocross racer/competitive bass fisherman turned genius grape farmer and a young, independent, single-mother maverick wine brewer who originally wanted to be a stand-up comedian. Against all odds they meet and start creating the highest-quality wines. Few years into making wine, world-renowned sommelier Gerard Basset happen to taste their wines, tweets the world about it (which is, let's face it, as close to breaking the internet that Japanese wine world can get) and the rest is history.
