2022 Miyoshino Jozo Hanatomoe Yon-Dan (720ml)14851
WINEMAKER: Teruaki Hashimoto
REGION: Nara, JP
Established in 1912, Miyoshino Jozo produces a unique range of Sake. The current Toji Master Brewer is Teruaki Hashimoto, whose sake-making philosophy is very unique, with a strong emphasis on yeast. As with many of his sake the Hanatomoe utilises naturally occurring yeast, resulting in a sake with high acidity. Yon-Dan Shikomi or 4-stage fermentation is relatively rare in sake production, and in this case it gives the sake more body and intensity. This shows a wonderful aroma of mango fruit, impeccable balance of sweetness & acidity on the palate & great depth of flavour.
