Sho Chiku Bai Junmai Ginjo Sake Us NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Ginjo is a special reserve connoisseur class of sake. Most sakes are brewed with rice that has been milled 30%. For our Ginjo we use rice that is polished over 50%. Additionally, we use a special strain of yeast that allows for fermentation at a cooler temperature. The result of the slower, longer process is a silky-smooth, rich and fruity flavor. Character: Delicate, dry and silky smooth Dry/Sweet: +5 (dry) Texture: Soft and smooth Aroma: Strong ginjo aroma Suggestions: Serving: Chilled Pairing food: Perfect by itself or with lightly seasoned foods.

Surprised with this one. I've had their larger format bottles for decent cooking sake and never thought more of the Sho Chiku Bai label. Polished fruit, floral and rice flavors with good body and smoothness. Could be a little bit more refined in terms of depth, though it delivered much more than expected.
