ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
KUBOTA JUNMAI DAIGINJO
A gentle, elegant nose of cherry, pear, mango and melon. Dry like most Kubotas, but hidden within are flashes of raisin, apricot and green grapes, highlighted when it gently warms on your palate. Smooth right to the delicate, crisp finish.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is made from Gohyakumangoku rice that has been polished to 50%.
HOW TO ENJOY
Versatile, works with most dishes; try it with dishes like grapefruit and seafood carpaccio, smoked salmon, cheese plates, oysters.
Enjoy chilled. Serving in a wine glass will let the acidity expand on your palate.
ASAHI SHUZO - KUBOTALEARN MORE
Asahi Shuzo was founded in 1830 with the motto, "Quality First." They believe that the quality of rice is the utmost importance in sake brewing; as one of their past Toji put it succinctly: "The quality of sake cannot go beyond the quality of the ingredients." Asahi Shuzo spends a vast amount of energy and time into rice making, they've even founded an agricultural production corporation, Asahi Noken, where they research to preserve Japan's national agriculture and produce better sake rice.
