|Rice & Polishing||Kitakata Yamadanishiki 喜多方産山田錦 88%|
Focused on its rice, Kitakata Yamadanishiki, which is a limited and special variant of the king of rice farmed only in Fukushima City Kitakata, this Sake gives a refreshing and umami flavour unlike any.
The farmer who represents the rice development also mills the rice at Tokyo with a laborious method of scraping the rice.
All in all, despite being only 88% polishing, the result of this recipe brought out an impressive combination of controlled acidity and tamed sweetness with a distinct fruit-forward aroma reminiscent of apple and pear. A truly dignified sake served during mid-meal.
