Konteki “Pearls of Simplicity” Junmai Daiginjo Saké (720mL bottle)
Rice Wine – Saké | Alc: 15.5%
Kyoto Prefecture, Japan
Konteki Pearls of Simplicity is polished to 50%. From one of Japan’s smallest breweries, this Daiginjo is made with Japan’s highest quality rice and local Fushimi mizu, the soft, pure water from Japan’s Eastern Mountains. Highly respected rice farmer Masayasu Tanaka carefully works the naturally fertilized soils of his farm in eastern Tottori prefecture to grow some of Japan’s best quality Yamada Nishiki, considered the pinnacle of premium sake rice. A bouquet of bright floral aromas is the perfect beginning for this crisp Junmai Daiginjo.
Clean flavors of honeydew and lemon dominate but a subtle hint of licorice sneaks up once you get to the long and elegant finish. This is a great sipping sake but also a wonderful companion to a scallops, pork and other light meats.
