Manotsuru Junmai Daiginjo Miku
Product also available in store : 28 rue du Dragon - 75006 PARIS
Made from Koshitanrei rice from Sado polished to 35%, Junmai Daiginjo "Manotsuru Miku" won the gold medal at the Kura Master competition held in France. This is probably due to a Sado rice technique, which uses the nutrients contained in oyster shells to enrich the irrigation water in rice fields. On the nose, this sake is distinguished by a rich tropical fruit aroma and citrus acidity. Its name "Miku" comes from the Japanese "Minori no torai", meaning "the birth of fruits", in reference to the fruity richness of its taste.
Serving suggestions : A heady sake that goes perfectly with meat dishes such as orange duck. Its fragrance is enhanced tenfold when tasted in a wine glass.
Consume in moderation.
Alcohol should not be consumed by pregnant women.
The Obata Brewery
Located on the island of Sado in the prefecture of Niigata, the know-how of Obata and the manufacturing techniques of its flagship sake, the "Manotsuru" have been handed down from generation to generation since its creation in 1892. The Obata Brewery is the pride of the sake of the island of Sado, thanks to the 3 pillars of "sake-zukuri", as primary as elusive: water, rice, and man.
The Brewery turned 125 in 2017, and Mrs Obata Rumiko, in charge of the house, is the only woman at the table of the presidents of Niigata's 90 sake producers.
Rumiko Obata, 5th heiress of the Obata brewery, is certainly the only woman president of the 90 sake houses in Niigata prefecture. Mrs. Obata actively participates in the promotion of Sado Island in the world, particularly through education on sake making.
The Toki, Japanese ibis, once populated Sado Island in large numbers. In particular with the "Toki-friendly" certification of its sake, Obata fights for the protection of this species and the island's natural environment.
