HAKKAISAN HAS BEEN BREWING SAKE in Niigata, Japan, since 1922. Hand-made koji, small batch moromi (fermentation mash), and a slow, temperature controlled fermentation allow Hakkaisan to produce sake with an elegant umami, a smooth texture, and a clean finish. Snow-Aged Junmai Ginjo 3 years is Hakkaisan’s new creation.
Hakkaisan’s Snow-Aged Junmai Ginjo 3 Years is a very fine yet complex sake, retaining the natural character and clean flavors of the rice used in brewing. The aroma is elegant and understated, which is a hallmark of Hakkaisan sakes. Through maturing in the yukimuro , the sake’s flavor becomes even more mellow and smooth, with an enhanced roundness in the texture . As it is not diluted with water, Hakkaisan Snow-Aged Junmai Ginjo 3 Years has more body which, along with a crisp finish , allows it to pair very well with foods not usually matched with sake, such as Mediterranea seafood, chili pepper, liver paté and beef tenderloin.
Light refreshments served.
