        Winemaker Notes

        Richly aromatic with tropical fowersand fruits. Lush guava, mango, pear andapple notes accentuate this slightly sweetand wonderfully easy to enjoy sake. In Niigata, brewery employees workeven while the snow reaches 20 feet. Thissake is in honor of them, the Winter Warriors.

        Yoshinogowa, Japan
        Founded in 1548, Yoshinogawa is recognized as the first Kura (brewery) in Niigata Prefecture, famous for fine saké.

        The marriage of traditional methods and modern technology allows the brewing team to maintain it’s focus on local ingredients and processes that keep every bottle of Yoshinogawa a definitive expression of place. Each style is differentiated by the Toji’s approach with yeast, rice, koji, and aging. Careful manipulation of each element and the stages of brewing offers a near endless number of styles and flavor profiles.

        The introduction of the waterwheel in the 17th century, which eliminated the need for the manual polishing of rice grains, allowed Japan to begin producing saké at an industrial level for its greater population. Today Japan remains at the cutting edge of technology in its brewing practices. However, the traditional methods of handcrafted, artisanal saké remain alive in smaller and often family-owned breweries. Many of these showcase local ingredients and focus on microclimates to make what is known as ‘jizake,’ or regional saké.

        A notch above Junmai in its milling requirement, by definition Junmai-Ginjo requires milling of 40% of the rice grain so that 60% of each grain remains. The categories of saké are established not by rice variety, but by the polishing or milling percentages. Junmai-Ginjo is made up of water, koji mold, yeast and rice and is brewed without the addition of any added alcohol.
