Kamenoo is a once-forgotten rice strain that is fragile and hard to grow. It produces sake that age well, and this is a great example. Vibrant, crisp and fresh with an aroma of blush young pear. After ageing, it develops a lovely nutty character with a balanced finish.
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.
