Silvery straw color. Aromas of marinated mushrooms and prosciutto wrapped melon with a round, vibrant, dryish light-to-medium body and a seamless, intricate, long savory green tea, strawberry in whipped cream, clove, and licorice finish. An exceptionally balanced and appetizing Sake with rich flavors and excellent pairability.

Junmai Daiginjo Sake

Junmai Daiginjo’s have at least 50% of the outer hull milled away. Some high end Junmai Daiginjo’s actually get down to 65% of the hull removed. How much of the outer hull of the rice kernel is a major determinant of the final quality of the saké. The more of the hull that’s removed the higher the quality of the saké and generally the price of it as well. The term "Junmai" literally translates into “pure rice”. This is the older, more traditional method of brewing sake. Junmai Daiginjo saké can only contain four ingredients: rice, water, yeast and koji.

Pair these sakes with sushi, fusion cuisine or even scallops or pork chops.
