CHIYO SHUZO - NARA
Junmai • Pure Rice Sake

Chiyo Shuzō’s very small production are constantly sought after because of their quality & limited availability. The Moromi Nigori is directly bottled from the tank, only given a very coarse filter, and thus contains fermentation sediment. Very fragrant notes of fresh ferment. The palate is dry and textural with the slightset hint of spritz. A wonderful aperitif.

RICE POLISHING: 50%
YEAST STRAIN: #9
*Koji = rice used for creating the Koji. *Kake = rice used in the main fermentation
