Winemaker's Notes:

Crafted with pure, natural spring water from this family brewery nestled at the base of Osaka's scenic Ikoma mountains.

Aromas of peach and powdered sugar. On the palate, the flavors head toward apricot, peach skin, and a touch of anise. This medium bodied sake presents a unique combination of a dry, crisp sake that also has amazing complexity of flavor. Great balance too.

About Tozai:

Daimon Shuzo, founded in 1826, is located at the foot of the scenic Ikoma mountain range in Katano City (near Osaka).

Katano occupies a well-known spot in Japanese history. During the Heian era (over 1000 years ago), the aristocracy of Western Japan flocked to Katano to enjoy the very beautiful scenery that abounded there including lovely cherry blossoms in the spring and the verdant surrounding mountains.

Hunting was the main sport of the gentry and cotton seed oil and silk production were the usual industries of the residents.

Sake production began during the Edo period, but of the many sake-producing firms originally present, only Daimon Shuzo and one other remain.

About Tozai
