True Vision by Manatsuru
Manatsuru was established in 1751 and became legendary in 1998 when the current toji took over and won every gold medal in sight.
This sake embraces a truly purist philosophy; undiluted, unfiltered, unblended, pure rice sake made in the risky and labor intensive ancient yamahai method.
Toji Izumi-san is on a quest to push the envelope of sake's flavor, structure, and appeal as we know it today. He has been quoted as saying "It is more important to be the only one than to be number one."
An aromatic and expressive yamahai with notes of tart yogurt, mushroom, honey, banana and steamed rice.
Manatsuru is imported by Vine Connections - the leading artisan Japanese sake importer in the US
