This Sake is the flagship product from Matsumoto Sake Brewery. Made with a vintage rice from 2019 of class A Yamada Nishiki, the brewery is working with a very rare pressing methos called Shizuku. In order to separate the rice sediments from the final sake, the whole mash is put into linen bags and hung up on the ceiling. The brewer then waits for the next four hours to extract the purest and most refined part of the entire brew, drop by drop. Once the bottle is filled by this method, it is immediately vacuum sealed. The texture of this super premium Sake is silky and smooth, while the nose has black currant, orange peel, fennel seed and lychee perfume. The tongue is sharp, light body and similar to the nose in terms of fruityness. Clean and long finish, with light herbal and yogurt hints.
Perfect served alone, or paired with raw fish and seafood.
