Imada Fukucho Junmai Ginjo Biho 720ml
Using soft water and brewing by hand in small batches, one can truly feel the warmth and passion of one of the only female Brewery Heads in Japan. Not only during fermentation, but after they squeeze and filter the sake, it is bottled and stored in strictly controlled low temperatures to preserve the Ginjo-style sake's freshness and soft mouthfeel. The elegant sake has a nose wisteria and fruit, and hints at crispy green grapes.
Fukucho Biho (Imada) produces exclusively high quality Ginjo-class sake, using mainly Hiroshima prefecture rice. Caring for quality, they will only sell their sake to stores that are dedicated to excellent quality control. They are based in Akitsu, Hiroshima, the same as the first person to develop Ginjo-class sake. To be true to their region's style, they try to revive old strains of sake rice native to the area. With the skill & tradition of a 100 year legacy, they hope to spread the taste of a true Hiroshima Ginjo to the far corners of the world.
Floral and melon notes, with a ginjo aroma also. Elegant light rockmelon & pear flavour. The aftertaste lingers and is dry. Would suit sashimi or even tempura with rock salt.
