A beautifully balanced and flavourful sake. Kimoto as a style can be deeply intense however his version here is round, so and impeccably textured. Vibrant freshness and a re ned acidity that leaves the drinker reaching for another glass. Light body with moderate dryness. A versatile sake either on its own or with a broad selection of food - a wonderful all-rounder. Store and serve cool.

Chiyo Shuzo is run by Tetsuya Sakai. The Shinomine range of sake from Chiyo is named after the Shinomine mountain range not far from the brewery. Sakai-san’s focus with the Shinomine range is to craft balanced and acid-driven sake that showcases the rice type along with the ability to age gracefully. Unpasteurised, undiluted.
