Fermentation: 8 day Starter (Shubo) Ferment kept at 20 deg to build a good yeast population before
being chilled to 8 deg for the start of Moromi, followed by a low and slow 31 day Fermentation
(Moromi) with a maximum temperature of 11 deg to produce a delicate, complex and lifted sake.

Pasteurisation: Pasteurised once only just before bottling (Nama Chozo - 生貯蔵) The sake is heated to 65°C however it is only kept at that temperature for 1 or 2 seconds instead of the usual 30 minutes. The shorter pasteurisation helps to keep more of the delicate aromas and flavours.

p) Amazing purity with exquisite white peach, white blossom, melon and mineral notes, lovely texture, a quick clean finish with excellent structure and a slight creamy edge.
