International Wine Challenge (IWC)2019 Junmai Division Gold

"Amanoto Tenkuro Kurokoji-jikomi Junmai, undiluted (720ml)" is a Junmai, undiluted brewed with black rice malt (used to make shochu), using the rare brewer's rice "Hoshiakari", an original product from Akita Prefecture. This Japanese sake boasts a progressive, bold new taste, born from an exchange of technologies and techniques with Taikai sake brewery, a shochu brewery in Kagoshima Prefecture. The taste features an acidic flavor that is characteristic of black rice malt, with its citric acidity and green lemon sourness, and results in a superbly balanced flavor, filled with the sweetness of "Hoshiakari" and its 60% sei-mai buai (rice-polishing ratio). This sake has won the gold medal in the junmai sake category at the International Wine Challenge (IWC)2019, one of the world's foremost wine competitions, establishing its position as a superior sake of world-class quality.

[About "Amanoto"]
The name comes from an ancient song that describes the legend of the "Gate of the Celestial Rock Cave of the Sun Goddess", "Amanoto". This sake is made using only brewer's rice harvested within a 5 km radius of the brewery, and brewed using only Junmaimade to grow this particular rice. This sake is the culmination of such dedication and attention to details, a practice of Terroir which brings out the best in the region's unique characteristics.
