Oe-nishiki Junmai Sake
Oe Town’s geographical conditions are said to be ideal especially for growing sake rice. Oe-nishiki is made by highly polished “Miyama-nishiki” cultivated under such a perfect conditions and the spring water from the Asahi Mountain Range. This “Oe-nishiki” is considered just like a younger brother of “Jintsu no Shizuku” and this is another special local sake we are proud of. Once you taste its smooth texture and fresh aftertaste, you will be tempted to have another glass.
This relatively new sake rice was a result of a mutation in 1978 when “Takane-nishiki” (hybrid between the pistil “Hokuriku No.12” and the stamen “Tohoku No.25”) was treated with radiation at Nagano agricultural experimental station. Sake brewed by Miyama-nishiki is light with fresh aftertaste. The shimpaku (the starchy center core of each sake rice grain) is not as large as Yamada-nishiki but it was named Miyama-nishiki as its shimpaku reminds us of the snow on the summit of the Northern Japan Alps. Miyama-nishiki is mainly produced in Nagano, but it is also grown in Tohoku region including Akita Yamagata, and Iwate.
