Hyaku Moku Junmai Ginjo

0.00

Class: Junmai Ginjo

Rice: Special-A Grade Yamada Nishiki from Miki-shi

Rice-Polishing Ratio: 59%

Brewery Location: Hyogo

Food Pairings: Light sauces, White asparagus with Beurre blanc, Poached flatfish etc.

Tasting Notes: This junmai ginjo is a product born from the centuries-long bond between Hyogo's farmers and brewers. Brewed with large-grain Yamada Nishiki from Yokawa Hyogo's "special A" Grand Cru terroir and polished to 59%, this sake opens with notes of ripe pear, followed by sweet plum and nectarine. While filling one's mouth with the rice's natural umami, a hint of acidity leaves the palate with a heady, dry feeling in the airy afterglow this sake provides.

Brewery: Kiku Masamune Sake
Founded: 1659

Profile: In April of 2016, for the very first time in 130 years, Kiku Masamune launched the new brand "Hyaku Moku" named for the Japanese idiom that expresses the profound impact of "100 Silences". The brand is driven by a modern concept of complementing all kinds of food, which is in contrast with the smooth, dry flavor that Kiku Masamune is known for. The initial launch was limited to 400 restaurants in Hyogo prefecture. This is a popular souvenir at the Kiku Masamune Sake Brewery Museum.
