2018 Chiyo Shuzo Shinomine Kimoto Sake

Nara, Japan

We asked Black Market Sake to taste their most entry-level sake and this was the result. Only a small amount is allocated to Australia of the Chiyo Shuzo. The Shinomine Kimoto represents an elegant example of this traditional ferment [Kimoto]. Fragrant & fruity aroma the palate is complex with a vibrant freshness and refined acidity. Rice type: Yamada Nishiki. Rice Polishing: 60% [Koji] 77% [Kake]. Alcohol: 17.5%. Serve chilled and enjoy in 60ml nips.

About the maker

Surrounded by the four prefectures of Osaka to the West, Kyoto to the North, Wakayama to the South and Mie to the East, Nara Prefecture can also be considered the historical heartland of sake where centuries ago “Nara-zake” was a term to signify sake of exceptional quality.

Chiyo Shuzo is a very small brewery founded in 1873 which moved to its present location in the southwest part of the Nara basin near the Shinomine mountain range in 1902. Their very small production consists of many, many tiny meigara [brands] which are constantly sought after because of their quality and limited availability. Thanks to Black Market Sake for the notes.
