Tasting Notes: An elegant, super-premium saké. A pleasingly light and fruity nose, laced with violets, strawberries, pear and grape. A refined and clear flavor, yet settled and deep. Semi-dry with a superbly clean finish.
Notable Facts: This is the oldest active brewery in all of Japan (based on the oldest written records available). Mr. Sudo is the 55th generation of his family to brew saké. Everything brewed here is junmai ginjo or junmai daiginjo, and almost all of it is unpasteurized. They recently revived a strain of rice that grew about 2000 years ago, which was discovered in ancient ruins near the brewery.
