The Hakusan Junmai Daiginjo sake has a rice polishing degree of 50%. This is a Junmai Daiginjo sake, that is, sake of the highest quality level. The Daiginjo category is the most demanding art of sake brewing. Hakusan comes from Ishikawa Prefecture, which is extremely famous for sake production. This sake has a fresh, refined and mineral taste with fruity notes of pears, honeydew melon and cherry blossoms paired with a pure rice aroma. Moreover, the beautiful bottle design is impressive.
The Manzairaku Sake Kura brewery is located in Hakusan, at the foot of the mountain of the same name. The area is famous for its clear and medium-hard water, which is particularly suitable for sake brewing. The brewery has existed since the Edo period, and was founded in 1716. There are around 35 sake breweries in Ishikawa Prefecture, which have a special craft and produce fine as well as complex sake. Here, the traditional art of brewing is preserved. At the same time, they also face the challenges of modernity. Most breweries are small and can only produce small quantities. For the high-quality Hakusan Daiginjo sake, the rice is polished particularly hard before processing in order to preserve as much of the starch concentrated in the rice kernel as possible. The lower the degree of polishing, the finer and more aromatic the sake. Hakusan is made from 100% Yamada Nishiki rice, which is only used to produce premium sake of the highest quality. The degree of polishing is 50%. This sake has a powerful, silky-fine aroma, is fruity of ripe banana, pear and cherry blossom and also refined as well as full-bodied in the finish.
Enjoy the Hakusan Junmai Daiginjo Sake well chilled in a special sake glass or alternatively in a white wine glass.
