Koshu of Japan comes to London next month

Koshu of Japan (KOJ) is coming to London for a trade and press tasting on 12 February at London wine club 67 Pall Mall.

Koshu grapes have a pinkish-grey tinge

The organisation, which comprises leading producers from Japan’s Yamanashi wine region, will be showcasing the new 2018 vintage of the Koshu grape.

Along with the latest expressions of Koshu, winemakers from nine Japanese wineries will be coming to the capital to show a selection of international varieties including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

The tasting will also include the newest member of the KOJ organisation – Manns Wines, who will be presenting its products in London for the first time.

Attendees will have the opportunity to taste the full range of styles the Koshu grape can produce, including sparkling, sur lie and barrel-aged wines.

Koshu is considered an indigenous variety of Japan, developed from grapes that travelled the Silk Road across Central Asia from the Caucasus to China and then to Japan around a thousand years ago.

The grapes have a pinkish-grey tinge and Koshu wines tend to be a pale, straw colour with soft, fruity aromas and notes of citrus and peach.

Seafood and Japanese-inspired canapés will also be on offer at the tasting, for attendees to explore the food-matching potential of different styles of Koshu.

For more information or to register your interest in attending the tasting please visit the Koshu of Japan website or email koj@thisisphipps.com
