Denshin Aki Namazume Genshu (伝心 秋 純米生詰原酒)

Denshin Aki Namazume Genshu (伝心 秋 純米生詰原酒) is an undiluted autumn Junmai Namazume made of Koshinoshizuku rice milled to 65%.

This undiluted version of Denshin Ine (available throughout the year) is left to mature in brewing tanks over the summer. Doing so smoothes out the sake's flavours; it is then bottled without pasteurization in the autumn when it has rounded out beautifully. Aki has an aroma reminiscent of melon and a soft umami that expands in the mouth alongside juicy sensations. Finally, the dynamic strength of the undiluted sake makes itself felt in the finish.

The robust volume and rich umami of this undiluted sake make it perfect for intense dishes with strong flavours, particularly protein-rich meat and fish dishes like braised pork belly, eel, grilled tuna collar, yellowtail teriyaki, charcoal roast beef, and grilled organ meats. The strength of the sake also allows it to be enjoyed over crushed ice or mixed with soda water.

It is best consumed at room temperature but can also be chilled (5-15°C).

Ippongi Kubo Honten was founded in 1902 by Nikichi-sensei, the fifth-generation owner hailing from the Kubo family. The frigid land of Katsuyama, with its abundance of clean water and beautiful rice fields, is the ideal environment for sake brewing. The essence of Fukui's sake - dry sake with a good crisp finish - was highly evaluated in the early Showa era. Ippongi has become one of the largest sake brewers in Fukui Prefecture.

The best of autumn
Colour / hue
Pale Yellow
Clarity
Clear
Clear, pale yellow appearance with slightly high viscosity. Subtle nose of melon, dried fruit and narazuke. Fragrant. Palate: dried fruits, herbal with notes of cedar, oak, and dried leaves. Medium body, acidity, and umami, relatively strong alcohol. Soft, creamy, and silky with a dry feel, spicy attack, elegant mid-palate sweetness, slight acidity, and a spicy, slightly peppery finish. A classic in the Denshin lineup.

Did I mention it was an ishobin (一升瓶, a 1.8l bottle)? 😄
