Fujiichi Shuzo was founded in 1870 and is located north-west of Nagoya in Inazawa City. The Toji here is Katsuaki Yamamoto, who took over the head brewing role in 2012. In the short time he was Toji, Yamamoto-san quickly placed Fujiichi Shuzo on the sake ‘map’ with the creation of the ‘Kikutaka’ brand. With this range of products under the Kikutaka label he concentrated on creating sake with a lot of umami and acidity. This is achieved by meticulous work in the Koji room, where he strives to have every individual grain of rice fully coated in the pristine Koji coating before being used in sake production. This level of care and work ethic has ensured the ‘Kikutaka’ brand as being one of the most sort after in Japan. 

This 'Kikutaka Kanazawa Kobo' is made with Oyama Nishiki rice from Toyama prefecture. Kanazawa Kobo references the yeast used in this sake, which is also known as yeast #14. An incredibly vibrant sake, with a fruit-driven aromatic profile. Medium-bodied, the fruity palate lingers with a bright complex acid-driven finish.

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.
