SAKE SWEETNESS

DESCRIPTION

Made with only "Miyamanishiki" brewing rice grown in Nagano Prefecture, ground down to 39% of its original size. This Junmai Daiginjo brewed with high quality spring water from the Minami Alps and yeast from the same prefecture. The moromi is fermented at low temperatures over a long period of time, using the labor intensive traditional Fune method, a rarity in modern sake production. The fune method consists of carefully lining up sake-making bags in sake casks and slowly and gently squeezing out the liquid, and it produces a sake with a pure taste free of off flavors.

SOMMELIER'S NOTES

Made from the highest quality local sake rice. Fresh ginjo-ka floral aromas of jasmine, white peach, white grape and lychee aromas. Smooth texture, very well integrated with a mouth-watering finish.
