A full-tasting, easy-to-drink sake with exquisite fruity aromas.

Providers of fresh, distinctive sake to the Japanese Imperial Household for over 100 years, Sakari delivers a sublime palate of fruity refreshment with this rich junmai ginjo sake. Brewed in Nishinomiya, this sake benefits from the natural, high-grade quality of local Yamada Nishiki rice, fermented and distilled in the mineral rich waters of Mount Rokko to produce medium-bodied umami notes of citrus. Polished to 55% their size, the rice grains brewed within this junmai ginjo offer a fuller experience of their delicately sweet flavours, expertly drawn out by Sakari's own combination of cultivated yeasts. Best enjoyed chilled, this sake pairs well with umami rich foods such as miso and dashi stock, whilst also being a richer complement to lighter seafood and chicken dishes.

Background

Sake is Japan’s most well-known alcohol. It is brewed using special sake rice, koji (an edible rice mould that serves as the fermenting agent), 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 japancentre.com's extensive Sake selection.

Lovely, quality *** ***. Great for dinner parties or for people looking to try *** but unsure of where to start. Nice *** is never cheap & trying any of the cheap options from somewhere like Amazon is more likely to put you off wanting to try more (learned from experience lol). This doesn't mean however, that you need to break the bank to explore the wonderful world of ***, as there are plenty of good, quality brands that start in the £20+ range & *** *** is a great way to begin that journey, being somewhat closer taste-wise to wines that we Westerners are more accustomed with. I usually drink Bizen Maboroshi but I thought I'd try something different & Sakari no. 13 *** *** has a nice, crisp, slightly fruity flavour that is great to drink with food or even better, simply enjoyed sipping away on an evening. Would definitely buy again.
