Description

Robert Parker, Jr’s Wine Advocate: . “A Chablis-styled sake but with Grand Cru quality, the NV Katsuyama Akatsuki Junmai Daiginjo has knock-out minerality that feels just like climbing a stony mountain. It has great complexity, providing scents of flint, earth, jam, citrus and peach. This sake is off-dry and perfectly balanced with refreshing acidity, together with big structure and deep concentration. It has a prolonged meaty, spicy and mineral finish. A fabulous sake! Rice: Yamada Nishiki.” Aug 2016 Brewery: “This is sake with an elegant flavor unlike any other before it. The softly rich fragrance and plump, full-bodied taste are enjoyed along with extreme clarity. Combining a high level of perfection with a delicate balance of flavors and aromas, this top-class umami sake befits the Katsuyama worldview. Akatsuki is a word meaning a “new dawn” and “sunrise,” as this sake is intended as a new modern style for the next generation of sake.” Importer: “A remarkable sake from Katsuyama brewery in Akita prefecture. Akatsuki Junmai Daiginjo is a “centrifuge” sake, meaning the mash is separated from the sake using an expensive, space-age centrifuge machine. This sake is amazingly complex and comes with many tantalizing opportunities for pairing with both western and eastern cuisines.Food Pairings: Kaiseki Cuisine.” Bottle720ml, screw capClassJunmai DaiginjoRiceYamada NishikiRice Polishing35%Alcohol16%ProfileSemi-dry, fragrant, richServing TemperatureColdRegionTohoku, Japan
