Chiyomidori No. 12 Junmai Daiginjo


Class: Junmai Daiginjo

Rice: Yamamda Nishiki

Rice-Polishing Ratio: 50%

Food Pairings: Bamboo Shoots, Blue Fin, Yellow Fin and Skipjack Tuna, Unagi Rolls, Yakitori with Tare, Iburigakko (smoked pickled radish), Beef, Baniku no tataki (((should we even include this!??!)))

Tasting Notes: Using Sake Yeast Number 12, which was first isolated in the Akita Prefecture Jozo Shikenjo (Brewering Research Center), this sake displays a gentle banana-like aroma and has excellent balance, brightness and freshness. Drinking at Nurukan (aka. “Body Temperature”) the aromas embolden and the Sake feels creamier and rounder.

Brewery: Okuda Shuzoten
Founded: 1675

Profile: Okuda Shuzo is the third oldest brewery established in Akita prefecture and exports the smallest amount of sake leaving Akita prefecture (based on 2015 shipment data); this allows them the flexibility and time to develop their skills and painstaking attention to detail which maintain the highest standards of Sake-brewing. Particularly popular are their Junmai Ginjo Genshu and Sake that made with modern, proprietary yeasts.
