STELLA JUNMAI DAIGINJO MUROKA-GENSHU SHIZUKUZAKE 720ml

 

Brewery: INABA Brewery

$168.00

Expertly blending traditional brewing with modern innovations, Inaba Shuzo, a family run brewery for 13 generations in the Ibaraki Prefecture, has created an unfiltered, undiluted saké brewed with natural water from Mt. Tsukuba. Helmed by one of Japan’s few female brewers – Nobuko Inaba – this Junmai Daiginjo has a limited run of only 7 tanks a year, and is not pressed, but rather allowed to drip out of cloth bags filled with the finished brew, a method called ‘Shizuku’. Exhibiting a vivid, fruity aroma with a clean and rounded flavour, the mellow umami flavour is drawn out of the rice's core as the temperature rises. While this saké has a little sweetness at first taste, the quick, clean finish means it will pair beautifully with Western cuisine.

This highly sought-after saké has won multiple awards in the Junmai Daiginjo category:
Los Angeles International Wine Competition 2019 - Silver medal
International Wine Challenge 2019 - Silver medal
Los Angeles International Wine Competition 2018 - Silver medal
International Wine Challenge 2018 - Silver medal
