Imanishi Shuzo is the oldest sake brewery in Japan situated at the birthplace of sake - Miwa in Nara Prefecture. Mimurosugi (みむろ杉) focuses on the expression of terroir where sake brewing first began and this is considered their "domaine" selection where the water used to irrigate the rice fields is also used for sake brewing. Imanishi-san, together with his team, are also heavily involved in the cultivation of rice used for brewing, adopting low pesticide farming.
Remarkably fresh Ginjo aromas with a balance of both granny smith, ripe melons & golden kiwis with white lilies too.The depth & breadth on the palate is arresting & compelling. Mouthfeel is plush & elegant with bracingly fresh acidity balanced with delicate umami and a crystal clear sharp finish.
