Mature and mellow

The brewery has always been obsessed with Yamadanishiki rice, and it’s no different with this sake. Using soft water from the Kitayama Mountains, the brewers have crafted a mellow, mature tasting sake. A scent like a bouquet of jasmine flowers leads into a clean, dry texture. The light mineral flavor develops and fades into a slightly crystalline umami aftertaste. Can be enjoyed at room temp and gently warmed.
