In 1967, Niida-Honke began producing its all natural Kinpou line using 100% Shizenmai rice, cultivated on their 600-acre property without the use of any pesticides or chemical fertilizers. By 2009, 98% of the rice utilized by Niida-Honke was Shizenmai rice. The Yamahai brewing method is used. Read about Yamahai Sake.
Tasting Notes: Crisp and tangy fruit characterize the aromas with starfruit, white melon and lemon zest. In the mouth it is vibrant and gentle with a core of vaguely sweet honeysuckle followed by earthy melon and light green moss. Light and refreshing.
