Nanbu Bijin "Ancient Pillars" Junmai Daiginjo Sake 720ml

SKU #1035369 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Very pale color. Complex, subtly saline aromas of lemon, lime zest, white rose and mint; also in a high-pitched, rather “northern” style. Very suave on entry, then rich and fine-grained, with terrific aromatic lift in the middle palate. Broader than the Divine Droplets: this really spreads out and melts into the tongue. Finishes very long, with noteworthy finesse. The alcohol here is actually a rather high 17.9%. This brewery is built around the well that supplies its water.  (1/ 2007)

K&L Notes

Yamada Nishiki Milled to 35%, made by Nanbu Bijin Shuzo in the Iwate Prefecture (one of the coldest and snowiest regions of Japan). This is a nama-chozo (pasteurized only once) genshu (not diluted with water) sake, which means it was pasteurized only once before shipping (rather than twice) and was naturally brewed to 17.9% alcohol.
