Tenryo Koshu

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 months ago

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

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

Sparkling Koshu

The best sparkling Koshu I’ve had. Good flavors of toast, green apple followed by a bit of citrus. Has a good weight which is different from the bland acidic sparkling koshus I’ve previously tasted. From a friends winery so maybe a small bias but top notch work! — 9 months ago

@Eric S It’s Japanese sparkling from the Koshu grape. Usually it’s not a grape with a ton aromatics and has high acidity so tends to be too light on the palate with lots of acidity. This was made in what is close to method traditionelle with three years of aging (can’t remember if it was in bottle or on lees). But the aging gave it some depth and volume.
