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.

ITEM ID: #14037

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. Sake that doesn't have any brewer's alcohol included is known as a junmai sake, or a pure rice wine. A sake's characteristics 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.
