Matsuura Shuzo was founded in 1772 in the mountain town of Yamanaka Onsen, famed for centuries for its hot spring baths and dedicated craftspeople. Under the guidance of 14th generation owner-brewmaster Fumiaki Matsuura they have developed an understated but compelling style of sake sought after by connoisseurs. Subtle aromas, clean, clear flavors and a structure with strength and backbone. Primarily only enjoyed locally in Ishikawa and at a select number of restaurants in Tokyo, we are lucky to see a bit of Shishi no Sato sake in the US.
- A soft, elegant and lightly fruity Junmai Ginjo with subtle sweetness.
- Extremely versatile for pairing but the maker particularly recommends it with delicate seafood like fluke, squid and seabream.
- With lighter flavors the sweetness of the sake recedes and becomes crisp and dry, and with richer flavor the umami blooms and expands.
- Light sweetness provides an excellent contrast to vinegared dishes or ponzu dipping sauce.
