Junmai award2010 Honor prize

"Yonetsuru Jinenryu Junmai-daiginjo" is a Junmai Daiginjo that has been brewed in the cold using the sake-brewing rice "Dewasansan", which has been specially cultivated by the brewery with the reduced use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. This brewery has been collaborating with local rice farmers for more than 35 years to cultivate sake-brewing rice for the production of sake. By being personally engaged in the cultivation process, it is able to modify the cultivation methods with the ultimate aim of sake production in mind. This sake, whose production begins with rice cultivation, exudes a refined and deep aroma and has a delicate flavor where the umami taste of rice comes to the fore. The name of this sake, "Jinen," refers to the authentic character and essence of an entity. As the first Junmai Daiginjo released by "Yonetsuru" in the 1980s, it was named "Jinen-ryu" to underscore the brewery's pursuit of the authentic taste of Japanese sake.

[About "Yonetsuru"]
The name "Yonetsuru" is derived from the bowing posture of ears of rice and the locally told tale "Crane's Return of a Favor." It incorporates a wish to create a sake that conveys a sense of gratitude and is imbued with sincerity. Under the concept of brewing that starts with rice-growing, this Japanese sake uses locally produced rice to offer a refreshing balance of scent, taste, and sharpness.

純米酒大賞2010 優等賞

蔵人が自ら減農薬・減化学肥料で栽培した特別栽培米の酒米「出羽燦々」で寒仕込みした純米大吟醸酒が「米鶴 じねんりゅう 純米大吟醸」です。当蔵は、35年以上前から地元の農家と協力して酒米栽培から手がける酒造りに取り組んでいます。酒米栽培を手掛けることで、酒造りのための栽培手法に取り組むことができるからです。「米作りからの酒造り」によって生まれたこの酒は、香りは上品でふくらみがあり、口あたりはやわらかで米の旨味が生きています。酒名にある「じねん」とは、本来あるべき姿やものごとの本質という意味です。日本酒本来のおいしさを追求する意味を込めて、1980年代に米鶴が初めて発表する純米大吟醸として「じねんりゅう」と名付けました。

[米鶴ブランドとは] 「米鶴」の名前は「お辞儀をするような稲穂の姿」と地元に伝わる民話「鶴の恩返し」に由来し、「感謝の気持ちを伝える、真心のこもった酒でありたい」という思いが込められています。「米作りからの酒造り」を基本に、地元産米を使った、香り・味・キレのバランスの良い爽やかな香味の日本酒です。
