ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
MASUMI NANAGO SAKE
Elegant aroma of ripe banana and peach, with rice elements that gives it a bit of complexity to the mix. Gentle sweetness and light umami spreads like the glow of a halo. Banana, Nilla wafers and molasses flavors, followed by a slight peppery timbre. Pleasant acidity and bitterness gives the palate a tight, strong structure.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is using Kinmonnishiki rice that has been polished down to 40%.
HOW TO ENJOY
This sake is a work of miracle in its complex balance of sweetness, tartness, bitterness and umami; pair it with a special and complex dish that requires some work; something that can stand as equals with this special bottle: if going the sushi route, think seared snapper. Or try it with soy sauce steamed white fish, marinated broiled eggplant, veal sweetbread and anago fricassee, fried spring rolls, asparagus with sesame paste.
Best served chilled.
