A beautiful bottle of bountiful, full-bodied junmai.
This sake rice wine by Gekkeikan, choice sake brewery of the Japanese royal family, is made using 100% Yamada Nishiki rice, widely regarded as the best rice for making exceptional quality sake. With a gentle dryness and profile sitting between clean and complex, this sake is also the perfect introduction into Yamada Nishiki or sake as a whole. Fruity with notes of apple and banana, this sake is best served slightly chilled or at room temperature, with foods rich in umami flavour.
