This sake is Kamoshibito Kuheiji’s signature Junmai Daiginjo representing harmony and a flavour that is true to its base ingredient, Yamada Nishiki rice, which has been grown by the brewery in Kurodasho, Hyogo Prefecture. This sake has been created to appeal to both a veteran sake drinker and a novice alike. It brings with it flavour components of sweetness, umami, acidity, bitterness and astringency which arise from the fermentation of rice and are called the “go mi” or five flavours of rice in Japanese.

The initial impression is floral with notes of apricot and lemon, with coriander seed and an edge of white pepper. The palate feels fresh and sharp with a backbone of acidity which opens to an elegant flavour with good balance. There is a rim of bitterness on the sake which is pleasant and cleverly balances the other elements of the sake. This sake like most of the range is well suited to long term ageing and in the bottle the freshness is preserved by just one pasteurisation. Experience the velvety and pleasant mouthfeel in a wineglass.
