Chokaisan Junmai Daiginjo Sake (720ml)

SKU #1059357

Founded in 1874, Tenju Shuzo is a tightly knit, family-owned brewery enjoying its sixth generation of sake production. To ensure the quality of their product, the brew masters at Tenju use only naturally filtered, soft water from nearby Mt. Chokai and rice grown by exclusively commissioned local farmers. A unique yeast derived from flowers gives this exceptionally elegant sake a pronounced floral bouquet. Tones of licorice and fresh herbs, coupled with a hint of asian pear, make this a perfect example of everything Junmai Daiginjo has to offer. Serve as an aperitif, or with salads and lighter fare.

Chokaisan is made in the cold Akita prefecture with soft mountain water, Miyama-Nishiki rice polished to 50%, and is fermented with ND-4 flower yeast. The result is a lightly floral nose, like white blossom, complimented by aromas of ripe banana, honey, yellow peach and tropical fruit. Structurally the sake is even-handed with moderate amounts of acid, umami, alcohol and sweetness. What stands out here is a plush and silky texture without the slightest rough edge, a sign of quality brewing. The feel of the sake dissipates quickly after tasting yet the flavor stays with you long into the finish. Flavors match the aroma and tasted with this sake's creamy feel and acidity it gives the impression of sweet, tangy peach yogurt.

This is one of the best sakes we carry at K&L - period. I would bring this bottle to a dinner party and just drink it like a bottle of white wine or rose. We need to get out of the habit where we only drink sake when we eat Japanese food. This is the bottle that should prove to serious wine drinkers that sake can easily hang with a great Sancerre or an Alsatian pinot gris. Crisp, vibrant fruit on the entry with hints of pear on the finish. Made with a unique yeast derived from flowers, the sake is one of the most aromatic and delicious we carry, as well as one of the most special.
