OVERVIEW

This Junmai sake is brewed entirely with Gohyakumangoku sake rice using the traditional Kimoto method. The Kimoto method has been in use since the Edo period, which takes a bit longer but skillfully enables the workings of yeast and lactic acid bacteria to create the brew. The result is a sake that's uniquely complex and concentrated, yet smooth and elegant.

The rice is polished to only 70% leaving the sake somewhat fruity with hints of melon. Food pairings would be full-flavoured Chinese and Indian cuisine. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

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.

SMV +2 - Acidity 1.2
