followed by a 25-28 day Fermentation (Moromi) with a miximum temperature of 12 deg to produce a complex yet delicate sake.
Filtration/Fining: Unfiltered and Unfined
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.

Tasting Note:
a) Clear bright, very faint pale straw
n) Very complex and intriguing yet super clean with toasted brioche, straw, mineral and honey suckle notes
p) Lovey texture and length with great complexity, mineral, almond meal, fresh baked bread characters and excellent structure.
