Japan sake Awards SAKE-China2018 Junmai Ginjyo Division Gold

"Sakehitosuji Jidaiokure Junmai-ginjo Yamahai (720ml)" is a Junmai Ginjo brewed using the well-known sake-brewing rice cultivar "Omachi", which was regarded in the past as the "king of sake-brewing cultivars," via the Yamahai method with a polishing ratio of 60%. Despite its leading reputation among sake-brewing cultivars, the difficulty of growing Omachi has led to a drastic reduction in its production volume until it was revived by this brewery which is located in a famous production region. Using Omachi, this sake is brewed by fermenting lactic acid bacteria and yeast naturally for over twice as long as most other sake. The result is a distinctive, exquisite balance of acidity and umami, as well as a vibrant depth of flavor unique to sake brewed using the Yamahai method. This Junmai Ginjo has been recognized for its superb taste both in Japan and abroad, and it won the Gold Prize in the Ginjo/Junmai Ginjo division of the "Japan sake Awards SAKE-China2018" Junmai Ginjyo Division Gold, the first and largest sake competition in China organized by various groups in the food industry of Japan and China.

日本清酒品評会 SAKE-China2018 純米吟醸部門 金賞

かつて「酒米の帝王」と呼ばれた幻の酒米「雄町」を復活させ、60%まで磨いて山廃仕込みで造った純米吟醸が「酒一筋 時代おくれ 純米吟醸 山廃」です。酒米の最高峰と言われながらも栽培の難しさから生産量が激減していた雄町をその名産地に建つ当蔵が復活させました。本品は雄町を使用し、通常の倍以上の時をかけ、自然のままの乳酸菌や酵母を増殖させ醸したものです。山廃造りならではの豊かな奥深いコクがあり、酸味と旨味のバランスが絶妙な唯一無二の味わいです。日本と中国の食品関連団体が主催する、中国で最初で最大級のコンテスト「2018年度 日本清酒品評会 SAKE-China」吟醸/純米吟醸部門で金賞を受賞するなど、国内外でその旨さが認められた純米吟醸酒です。
