Shunnōten Haruzake Junmai Namachozōshu (春鶯囀はるざけ純米生貯蔵酒)

Yorozuya Shunnōten Haruzake Junmai Namachozōshu (春鶯囀はるざけ純米生貯蔵酒) is made of domestic rice milled down to 63%. Junmai sake is pressed in the winter season and stored at low temperatures to keep it raw【生】until spring and pasteurised at the time of bottling to preserve the refreshing flavour of freshly squeezed sake. Shunnōten Haruzake has a refreshing taste with hints of sweetness and rice flavour.

The brewery, located in Fujikawa, Yamanashi Prefecture, was founded in 1790 by Yorozuya Hachigorō (萬屋八五郎). The history and culture of Fujikawa are deeply related to the brewery's birth. The town flourished as a boat station on the Fuji river route between Shizuoka and Kōshu (modern-day Yamanashi). The river's proximity attracted many sake breweries, including Yorozuya, to start their business in the area. Since 1790, the sake has been sold under the label "Ichiriki Masamune" (一力正宗), but the sixth-generation head of the Yorozuya, Min (旻) - deeply impressed by a poem - changed the name to Shunnōten (春鶯囀), used to this day.

In June 2001, the brewery opened its Gallery Rokusai (ギャラリー六斎) on the premises of a 150-year-old former brewery building. The old brewery was a miso brewery and a general store selling miso and soy sauce. Most of the buildings at Yorozuya Brewery are over 100 years old. Gallery Rokusai, the courtyard next door, and the main building were all built in the Meiji era.

Last year's review is still spot on. This year, we noticed that it carries a beautiful pink hue. And yes, it is sublime to those who like their sake sweet. As excellent as last year.

When we tried Shunnoten's "Spring Sake" for the first time in 2019, it came in a regular, nondescript green bottle with a pink label. Nowadays, Haruzake is presented in a stylish pink-coloured bottle that befits the season of hanami. It has a solid alcoholic aroma with sweet and slightly fruity notes. It's a floral fragrance with refreshing acidity, radiating notes of pink. Floral and alcoholic on the palate, well-balanced with pleasant acidity and a persistent bitterness that finishes in creamy, cherry-like bitterness. Sublime.
