Columbia Valley Chardonnay 2012

remind of muscadet or lees-aged koshu (it is sur-lie; koshu is Japanese grape) or like a really solid pinot grigio. but enjoyable in its delicacy. I had read it was "like Oregon Cali" chard - so a less fruit butteroak thing - so was impressed with its subtlety
Day2 melded new world flavors and hit all my style points. It aged 4years overnight in a good way! Jumped from 9.1 to 9.5! Yay auction gems. Looking for more

Château Mercian

Gris de Gris Koshu 2017

Thank god, success for koshu. Amber, peach, geraniums, and the usual citrus nose. This really makes up for the lack of depth and body in non mac koshu. It's still a light wine but there's an evolution from orange peel, peach, and softer floral flavours into a more chalky citrus finish. Its pretty awesome. We'll done mercian. — a year ago

Sunset Meadow Vineyards

Western Connecticut Highlands Cayuga White 2019

Clear pale white yellow. Purchased at the winery in Connecticut. Seemed to be a popular local tasting site. Young wine, but immediately reminded me of the Koshu wine we used to drink every night at Kofu Copier factory training! Citrus sour and easy to drink. — 2 years ago

First experience with Japanese wine. Lacking fruit, but plenty of acidity. Curious
