Rich and subtle. This tokubetsu junmai sake (meaning 'special pure rice wine') has been made using 100% Yamada Nishiki rice, which is famous for its use in high quality sake, and Japan-made koji (rice malt or rice mould). This sake has a floral aroma, a well-rounded flavour and a refreshing aftertaste. Best served slightly chilled or at room temperature, with foods rich in umami flavour.

Background

Sake is Japan’s most well-known alcoholic drink. It is brewed using any of a number of specialty sake rices, koji (otherwise known as rice malt or rice mould), and sometimes a little brewer's alcohol. A sake's characteristics, including how sweet or dry it is, how light or full bodied it is, and what flavours it evokes, depend on the type of rice and other ingredients used, how much the rice is polished/milled, and what brewing methods have been employed. To explore the wide and varied world of sake, take a look at Japan Centre's Sake section.
