ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
OKUNOMATSU SAKURA DAIGINJO
Beautifully clear. Aromas of vanilla nut brittle, coconut water, and papaya custard with a silky, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a pineapple sorbet, meringue, and salted radish-accented finish. Taste the umami of the rice, but none of the bitterness that sometimes accompany it. A soft, alluring, lovely sake with a nice balance of fruit; like a light kiss floating through the air among the falling sakura blossom petals.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is made from Gohyakumangoku rice that has been polished to 50%.
Pairs well with white fish sashimi, steamed dumplings, grilled fish, yakitori and tofu.
Chilled or room temperature, best enjoyed in a wine glass.
OKUNOMATSU BREWERYLEARN MORE
Okunomatsu Sake Brewery was founded at the beginning of the Edo period (1603–1868). They began as rapeseed oil merchants and by 1716, they were also producing miso, soy sauce, and of course, sake. Since then the spirit of their founder and his pursuit of high-quality sake brewing has been passed on generation to generation. Not only are they known for the quality of their sakes, but also their attention they give to packaging design, resulting in unique bottles.
