This sake is made from “Ginfubuki” rice which is a cross between Yamada Nishiki, a famous sake rice, and Tamazakae, a local varietal. “Ginfubuki” was registered by farmers in Shiga prefecture in 1999. Yasunobu Tomita, the 15th generation owner and brewmaster of Shichi Hon Yari, helped in the fields and committed to brew sake with this new rice varietal.
Herbal and nutty on the nose, this sake reveals green apple on the palate. It shows the classic Shichi Hon Yari style with a light and clean angle.
