The designation “Chotoku” means special, denoting a higher percentage of rice milled/polished away, or in this case using 100% of a special rice. Using locally grown Wakamizu rice in a Yamahai brewing style gives this sake a weighty, round, earthy palate of mushroom, roasted carrot and sweet potato augmented by a refreshing ripe fruit character of peach and papaya. This Junmai polishing rate far exceeds the requirements of 70%, and is instead polished to 50%; creating a light but very concentrated sake that finishes with a dry, mineral laden note. It is excellent served slightly warm as well as chilled. 15-16% alcohol.
