Sawanoi Hojo 35 Junmai Dai-Ginjyo is produced using special designation Hyogo Prefecture competition specification Toku A Chiku-san Yamada Nishiki sake brewing rice milled to 35%.
Water Source: Sawanoi's brewery is located deep inside the valleys along the western side of the Tokyo Prefecture. Accordingly, the heavily sloped land makes it impossible to drill a well vertically. Sawanoi's source for its water is a well that was drilled horizontally into the side of a mountain. The water sourced from this unique well generally takes 7-8 years to filter through the mountain rock.
Tasting Notes: The palest shade of straw possible in the glass, the nose of this sake has rich aromas of pear, rose blossoms, and subtle spice. A very clean, balanced palate follows, with flavors of sweet rice, white grape, and ripe pineapple. Smooth and elegant.
Rice Variety: Hyogo Toku A Chiku-san Yamada Nishiki
