Kikusui Junmai Ginjo Sake (300ml)

SKU #1073495

Junmai Ginjo is the second-highest grade of sake, the rice-based alcoholic beverage that has become a strong symbol of Japanese culture. To qualify for this prestigious title a sake must be made with rice polished (to remove bran and improve taste) to below 60 percent of its original weight, and must not be fortified with distilled alcohol. Producer Note: "This is a light and comfortably dry premium Sake with the aroma of fresh cantaloupe and banana followed by medium body bringing refreshing Mandarin orange like overtones. With just the right amount of body and a comfortable dryness it enhances any dish you eat. This is a great white wine alternative that is perfect for Sake lovers and beginners alike."

Kikusui Junmai Ginjo is a sake that I consider to be a standard in the category. Best served around hana-hie (50 degrees); at this temperature you will be treated to intense aromas of cantaloupe, honeydew melon and banana with hints of sweet mochi. Although the nose is aromatic, it never comes across as cloying or ostentatious. On the palate the sake is very well balanced; the body is moderately full without weighing down the palate and with just enough acidity, sweetness and umami to support the sake without distracting from its delicious fruit flavor and clean, silky finish. It is everything a quality Junmai Ginjo should be at a fantastic price and is impossible to disappoint!
