Jozen Mizuno Gotoshi Junmai Daiginjo “Indigo”
The locality of Minami-Uonumagun is famous for the high quality Yamadanishiki rice and Miyaminishiki rice.
Brilliantly clear, this elegant, highly polished sake (35%) shows clean, subtle aromas of honeydew, pear, hints of
spice with notes of fresh lily. Strong in character, the fruit and minerality intertwine for balance, with flavors of
apple, shizo, blood orange, bamboo and a hint of spice. This sake continues to please the palate and lingers with a
lean, dry, rich flavor. “Indigo” is truly remarkable.
ABOUT SHIRATAKI SHUZO:
Shirataki Brewery is located in the heart of the Japanese Alps called “Snow Country” in the Niigata Prefecture.
Each spring the snowpack melts providing an abundance of clear natural spring water. This water runs through a
coal seam providing a natural filtration process that accentuates the taste and quality of the water. This very soft
water is the secret behind the very light, elegant, pretty style of sake made at Shirataki. The town of Echigo
Yuzawa is home to “Koshi Ikari” a famous high-quality table and sake rice brand in Japan, as well as “Koshi Ibuki,
which is used in their light elegant style sake and “Koshi Tanrei” which is used in their sake with richer fuller flavor.
