Tasting Notes

Ishikawa’s 17th century Kutani Yaki porcelain artwork gracing this bottle helps tell the story that this sake has been made with local ingredients only. Discovered 100 years ago, the yeast known as kuratsuki kobo is especially unique as it exists naturally within the brewery itself, and is therefore only found in Nishide’s sakes. This Junmai Daiginjo exhibits notes of apricot and young banana that starts off soft and mild, giving way to the smooth umami of sake rice, finishing dry with balanced acidity.

Rcommended Pairing: sushi and dashi rich dishes
