Natsu no Omoide





Junmai • Pure Rice Sake

Another unique sake from Kuniko Mukai. The Natsu no Omoide has been made with a unique and rare strain of yeast called the ‘100 year old’ yeast that Kuniko propagated from a strain stored at Tōkyō University of Agriculture where she studied fermentation and brewing.  The Natsu no Omoide has been aged for 14 years and has an aroma of wood shavings and rich dried apricot.  Umami rich palate with sweet and sour apricot, prune and vanilla followed by a long finish with bitter caramel and wood nuances.  The Natsu no Omoide is unlike any other sake and we have nicknamed it our “Jura-zake” as it reminds us of wine from the Jura with its almost oxidative flavour. So unique!
