Katsuyama Ken Junmai Ginjo Sake 720ml
International Wine Challenge: "Rich perfumed aromas of red apple and flowers. Juicy impact but elegant style, bright and firm but fresh. Sophisticated finish, nice representation of style."
Brewery: "This elegant sake features a gentle, clean nose and smooth drinkability, with a flavor that expands into a soft and supple fullness. The superb balance of slightly dry and mild acid tastes and well-rounded aftertaste make it an excellent choice for meals prepared to bring out the best in carefully selected ingredients. It goes well with lightly flavored foods and also with seafood.
Importer: "Established in 1688, Katsuyama is a sake brewery with traditions lasting well over three centuries. They were established to brew the upscale sake enjoyed exclusively by the feudal lords of the Sendai domain, where was founded by Japan's Most famous samurai & military commander Date Masamune. To this day, Katsuyama carries on the reputation and tradition of its origins as a brewery for the lords.
This is an expertly Junmai Ginjo with a 50% milling rate. Very reasonably priced compared to other Katsuyama sake but still maintains the same superior quality. It has a light fragrance and is very flavorful. A perfect sake to pair with many types of dishes.
Food Pairings: White Fish Sashimi, Sushi."
