Cultivar: Okumidori
Elevation: 250m
Harvest: May 15, 2019

This year we selected gyokuro from three producers in the Okabe region: Endo-san, Tohei-san and Omura-san. Each teamaker offers an expression of the classic Okabe style, which emphasizes a unique mountain freshness balanced with umami depth. Endo-san's gyokuro has a very deep Okabe Kabuse aroma with notes of kombu, uni and a slightly tangy or zesty fruitiness. It is a remarkable gyokuro that reverberates and buzzes on the palate long after the last sip.
