Most sake which comes out of Shata Shuzo, goes through yamahai jikomi. This sake goes through the kimoto jikomi that involves yamaoroshi where the rice and koji are purposefully pureed together to invite wild yeast and produce naturally occurring lactic acid. The purpose for this is to make shubo. Nowadays, this process is rarely used in sake brewing as it's very labour intensive. No carbon filter used, so colour is a beautiful golden yellow. Opens with a rich nutty scent and tons of umami. The flavour fills and lingers with gentle acidity in the mouth. If you like to drink robust and rich flavoured sake, this is for you.
