The Kaze no Mori ‘807’ series by Yucho Shuzo brewery uses rice that is only polished lightly. The idea behind this is to make full use of the energy of the land. This sake series seeks to maximise complexity and diversity of taste.
A Muroka Nama Genshu pressed just days before shipping and like all Kaze no Mori sake it shows a lively freshness. Tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide are captured during bottling process to further enhance the lively nature of this sake. The numbers ‘807’ has its meaning. ’80’ represents the rice polishing rate of 80% (20% of rice is polished away). ‘7’ refers to the yeast number 7 used during the fermentation which brings Kaze no Mori its fragrance.
Subtle – fresh pear, blossoms and citrus peel.
Intense with explosions of juicy apple, mandarin, sour grapefruit, banana, limestone, honeydew melon and a splash of fresh cream. Try drinking this medium-dry sake over two days (if it lasts that long) and you will enjoy a richer flavour profile on the second day with more obvious umami.
Made from Tsuyuhakaze rice milled to 80%, specifically grown for Yucho Shuzo in the Nara Prefecture.
