A mellow and rich seasonal sake. This sake has a good mouthfeel with a pallet of well-balanced sweet flavors, with grape like aromas. Hiya-oroshi is a general term referring to sake that has been pasteurized once in the winter and then allowed to mature over the summer before distribution in the autumn months. Hiya-oroshi’s summer maturing process allows flavorful components to further coalesce and get to know each other, resulting in a bottle with boosted umami, and a balanced, less hard-edged profile.
*Hiya-oroshi sake's are not pasteurized for the second time before bottling. This results in a sake with some live yeasts and koji. Therefore refrigerated storage is adviced and we do not recommend to keep this sake for a long time.
