Mizuno Gotoshi translates to “The best things are like water” and this sake is very smooth and palatable. This style of sake is amazingly versatile and pairs well with almost any dish; seafood, poultry and meat. Try this one as an ideal introduction to the world of premium sake.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">This sake can be served chilled or at room temperature.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">The Junmai Ginjo style of this sake means that it has no added brewer’s alcohol. Junmai Ginjo sake is made using nothing but rice, koji, water and yeast. The rice polishing ratio for Ginjo sake must take away at least 40% of the kernel leaving no more than 60% of the rice for brewing.
<p style="text-align: justify;">Sake Meter Value (SMV), or in Japanese the Nihonshudo, is used for measuring the density of sake compared to water. The higher the positive number, the drier the sake becomes, and the lower the negative number, the sweeter the sake gets.
Together with the SMV, acidity level is used to determine the characteristics of each sake. The higher the number the richer the sake becomes, and the lower the number the lighter</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">For the newbies, the lower the % of polish on the rice the better the sake, so this one means that only 50% of the rice grain remains after milling to brew the sake – the smaller the rice means the finer sake. It takes longer to get the rice down to 50% of the original rice kernel so that’s where the premium bit comes in; we’re talking up to 50 days of milling and polishing rice kernels to get them to this pure and premium state.</p>
