ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
Brilliant and elegant aromas of white peach, banana, citrus, yellow apple, laced throughout with floral hints. The gentle sweetness joins the tempered acidity that accompanies you to the lovely finish; the smoothness of its texture is astounding. The pure, uncloying umami stays beautifully to the long finish.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is made from Yamada-Nishiki rice that has been polished to 35%.
HOW TO ENJOY
The sake's elegance is best brought out by playing the sake's pure umami against other umami-rich dishes. Think steamed shrimp gyoza, salt-crusted snapper, scallop carpaccio, goat cheese mousse, duck roast with honey sauce. If going the sushi route, think ikura.
Best chilled, in a wine glass.
Masumi/Miyasaka BreweryLEARN MORE
Masumi, a nationally admired sake brand, was founded in 1662 in Suwa, where a tradition of precise craftsmanship led the city to become the center of the silk industry. Still today, this attention to detail remains at the heart of the Masumi philosophy. In the 1920's, the brewery fell on hard times.The brewery's president, Masaru Miyasaka, appointed a young, 28-year-old sake prodigy named Chisato Kubota as toji. The two travelled up and down Japan, knocking on the door of the master and seeking knowledge.
