With an elegant balance between full bodied and lightness the KURUMAZAKA junmai ginjo is an allrounder and matches a diversity of dishes. The silky texture is the first thing one will notice. Warm notes of praline, lychee and white pear enfold in the mouth. In the nose vanilla and banana are present. The finish is soft and gentle, remarkably clean. Certainly a sake to drink more than just one glass of.

YOSHIMURA HIDEO SHOTEN is located in the middle of wakayamas beautyful mountain range. SInce 1915 the brewerie produces a wide range of premium sake and fruit liquors with ingredients sourced directly at the brewery. Akiko Fujita is the master brewer and one of the few females who work as a toji in Japan. The sake brewed by her are characterized by a beautyful balance of umami, minerality, acidity and fruitiness. The majority of her brews was stored at least three years at temperatures around 5°C. This process gives the sake a wonderful depth and complexity.
FUrthermore, most of KURUMAZAKA sake were brewed in the labour intense yamahai and kimoto method, in which the addition of lactic acid is waved. This results in a more edgy and funky aroma and taste.
