菊正宗酒造 香醸, 300 ml
A dry and umami-rich junmai sake that boasts an immersive flavour and fragrance.
Using the ancient 'Kimoto Zukuri' method of mashing koji into steamed rice and mineral water at low temperatures to create a strong natural yeasts, Kiku Masamune has developed their own new yeast to allow this koujo junmai to unravel rich aromas and flavours without the need for fine milling. With the sake yeast HA14, they are able to give their koujo junmai sake an invigorating, fruity essence akin to more refined ginjo sake, whilst maintaining a full-bodied umami texture creating a wonderfully refreshing and dry sensation that is smooth and simple to drink. By painstakingly focusing on techniques to naturally draw out a sake's finest notes, Kiku Masamune is able to deliver a luxury taste at a fraction of the cost in this sake, carrying lovely nuances of tropical fruit and radish to balance with well with any rich food.
