Junmai Ginjo Jisha Saibai Mai
Brewed from Sankei-Nishiki, a newly developed local rice from Nagano Prefecture. We have been planting this rice since its initial testing phase.
Markedly different from the common sake rice like Miyama Nishiki or Hitogokochi, it produces a dry and gorgeous sake with a unique acidity and umami, overflowing with deep, rich flavor.
A gentle nose of apple, pear, and melon, with a hint of acacia flower, bamboo, and mineral aromas.
Serving temperature and suggested pairings:
12~15℃ in a wide-mouth tulip wine glass
smoked Shinshu salmon with lemon
35~40℃ in a guinomi
do-bin-mushi (steamed matsutake mushroom with broth in a teapot accented with a squeeze of citrus fruit)
