- DAINA TOKUBETSUJUNMAI SAKE NOUVEAU MUROKA NAMA
For Basic plan members
This is brewery year 2016 sake nouveau and very first sake from Kikunosato Shuzo. Its refreshingly flourish top note reminds me of the arrival of new brewery season. Once sipping it in the mouth, young green apple like fresh and fruity aroma runs up the nasal cavity.
This sake nouveau also contains some amount of natural gas, so that you can enjoy little sparkling attack. Right after refreshing first impact, rich umami and gentle sweetness penetrates gradually. Finish is little sour which reminds you of green apple.
It's very charming but well-balanced sake nouveau. This kind of vivid sake makes me re-recognize that sake is a living thing.
COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
Using only special brewery rice produced with using only half quantity of fertilizer and agrochemical. This special brewery rice is produced by farmers' committee formed only for this brewery.
Solidity of water is 3.1 mg/l, this score is similar to the water in Niigata. This very soft water wells up from underground of the brewery. Melted snow falls in the summit of Nasu mountain turns into crystal clear water and flows down to the underground of brewery.
To carefully advance each brewing steps, we separate materials by small batches and brew slowly. Temperature control after brewing is also very important to bring sake's characteristic out. We have 3 refrigerators controlled in different temperatures. To mature sake in best condition, temperature control is one of the most important factor.
The brand name "大那" means "The great nature of Nasu". We are proud of the local natural resources such as rice and water and air. By making use of only local ingredients, we will produce high-quality sake which local people can be proud of. We believe sake is the representative of each local culture.
