2019 Uehara Shuzo Furosen Kioke Jikomi
Kioke Jikomi is fermented in a single wooden tank made of raw Japanese cedar.
Kioke in Japanese means ‘wooden’ and traditionally cedar was the main material used in sake making tanks. Brewing in these tanks allows for better temperature control during fermentation and the untreated character of raw cedar gives a hint of sweet wood in the fragrance & on the palate. The Furosen Kioke Jikomi shows delicate spice, white flowers and pear on the nose. Medium bodied the palate has a hint of nashi pear, a mineral backbone and a fine grip of acidity.
