ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
MIYASAKA YAWARAKA JUNMAI
Yawaraka means soft, in a cuddly, fluffy way, and that is exactly what this is. Smooth and gentle and low in alcohol, Yawaraka represents a new direction for Japanese sake brewers. It has an aroma of rice, caramel, butterscotch and cream. It has flavors of honeydew, Asian pear, young peach and plum, with hints of citrus tones—in short, subtle, but loaded. The toji has said that because of the low alcohol and SMV level, they had to be especially careful when balancing the acidity.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is made from Miyamanishiki rice that has been polished to 55%.
HOW TO ENJOY
Great for light fares: salad, shrimp, chicken.
Best enjoyed chilled or at room temperature, in a wine glass.
