The last Tamagawa offering for 2011

2011年12月28日 | Product news
3U Limited Editions.
Brewing Year 23 Junmai Ginjo Omachi, Round One.


Here at Tamagawa, we brew using several different rice varieties. Some is grown locally in Kyoto Prefecture (or even the very same village as the brewery), some comes from just over the mountain pass that leads into Hyogo Prefecture. From further afield, we use Yamada Nishiki from the prime growing areas of Hyogo, Nihonbare rice grown by my long-time collaborator Shimizu Mitsuo in Shiga Prefecture, and, last but not least, the historical variety Omachi from Okayama Prefecture.

A naturally-occurring strain discovered over a century ago, Omachi grows taller than all the modern hybrid varieties, and is very challenging for farmers to grow. I have been a big fan of Omachi as a brewer (and a sake drinker!) for twenty years.

After last year’s very difficult rice, this year’s is proving far more biddable. The first batch of Omachi sake this season, No. 12, has turned out to be crisp and elegant, with swirling flavours rushing across the whole palate. I am very pleased with it, and hope you will be too.

The 3U version of this junmai ginjo is the last limited edition released this calendar year. The series will be off with a bang again early in the New Year.
