‘Saemidori’, an early-budding variety whose name translates to “lucid green,” is affectionately dubbed “Queen of Cultivars” by local makers. Tasting the Moriuchi production, it is not difficult to see why. Lauded for its structure and elegance, the sunbathed, mineral rich slopes of Uchimaki allow the warm-weather cultivar to thrive. Mr. Moriuchi’s shizen jitate 自然仕立てcultivation style allows the bushes to gain some heartiness, particularly where frost and strong winds (young bushes require a windbreak) pose a distinct threat. Saemidori was harvested during an unusual warm snap—followed by weeks of cold (the gap between harvest dates) Bright and clean with low astringency and distinct aroma, the Saemidori is an excellent window into the Moriuchis’ theaculture. Notes of dill, lemon meringue and broccolini.
