Silvery straw color. Aromas of papaya, pickled mango, allspice, shiso, and creme caramel with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium body and a smooth, layered, long tamarind chutney, lime, and yogurt finish. A fruity, vibrant and outgoing Sake that will pair very well with spicy, tropical dishes.

Junmai Daiginjo Sake

Wine Glass Sake.jpg
Serve in a Stemless Wine Glass
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.
