Soft. Expansive Texture. Subtle.
From the brewery that invented Junmai - a beautiful representation of this style.
A commitment from the brewery to make premium sake despite agricultural hardships like those of WWII. Until this sake came along in the 1960’s, all sake had distilled alcohol added to it due to rice shortages and war rationing. After the war, Chiyonosono crafted the first junmai sake (brewed without distilled alcohol nor additives of any kind) and celebrated by sharing it from a large, red lacquered sake cup called a Shuhai.
Soft, expansive texture with aromas of orange blossom. Straightforward, with a very subtle sweetness coddled in layers of subtle umami.
Cream based pasta and anything with mascarpone.
Serve: Slightly Chilled
