Fine Sake Awards Japan 2019 Premium Junmai Division - Gold
Sempuku Mouri Junmai Ginjo is inspired by Mori Motonari, known in his day as a resourceful general. The bottle features an illustration of "A Sengoku warlord Mori Motonari", produced under the supervision of Manga artist Leiji Matsumoto. The sake is brewed with an insistence on rice and yeast from Hiroshima Prefecture. Gentle aromas reminiscent of ripe fruit, with crisp acidity and light aftertaste. Good balance between sweet and savoury.
Sempuku was named after two inspirational women who provided faithful support to the founder, Seibe Miyake: “Fuku” from his wife’s name and ‚”Chito” from his mother’s name. Once having operated an overseas factory in addition to a domestic one, they have recorded the largest volume of production in Japan. Even now, they deliver a well-traveled Japanese sake beyond the borders of Japan.
