Mukai Shuzo - 2000 'Natsu No Omoide' Sake

2000 'Natsu No Omoide' Sake

Kyoto, Japan

"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 Tokyo 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! Serve at room temperature" – Importer notes
