JoTo Huchu Watari Bune Ferry Boat "55" Ibaraki Junmai Ginjo Sake 720ml

SKU #1203631

Watari Bune is an "heirloom" rice strain, meaning it has never been crossed with another variety. It is also one of the parent strains to Yamada Nishiki, the most celebrated sake rice. Watari Bune had gone out of use for fifty years until this brewery revived it in 1989 with 14 grams of seeds. By 1996, they won a gold medal at Japan's National Sake Competition, and another in 1998. This is a deep, nutty, earthy, and complex sake with balancing notes of tropical pineapple and honeydew melon. One of the best pairings for umami-rich foods like pate or monkfish liver.
