The current Kuramoto is Isao Uehara and he is the the 7th-generation of his family to own and operate Uehara Shuzo, founded in 1862. Located on the north-western shore of Lake Biwa in Takashima, where the streets are lined with canals carrying fresh spring water, Uehara Shuzo uses this famously pure water to brew its Sake.

Kameno-o is an ancient table rice variety which produces more robust and deeply flavoured Sake that have a good potential for ageing. The ‘Furosen Kameno-o’ is Junmai Ginjo with the rice polished down to 55%. This Yamahai (traditional starter ferment) sake utilises natural yeast to ferment and is also Muroka Nama Genshu (no charcoal filtration, unpasteurised and undiluted).

This version of Kameno-o from Uehara Shuzo is an excellent example, showing a balanced and savoury character with wonderful ripe fruit and a striking focused backbone. Delicious on its own or with food.

FAQ

What is natural wine?

The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.

Are your wines vegan friendly?

In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.

Are your wines chemical free?

In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
