White gold color. Aromas and flavors of pine nut brittle, honeycrisp apples, dried pineapple, hints of soy, and musk with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, stimulating, medium-length finish with accents of beurre blanc, clove, and horchata finish. A table-ready Junmai Daiginjo with a full body and grippy texture.

Junmai Daiginjo Sake

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.
