A raw, refreshingly zesty example of Kuheiji's exquisite junmai daiginjo.
Through their renowned principles of producing sake with purer, sharper flavour profiles similar to French white wine, Kuheiji delivers an astoundingly fresh and full-bodied palate with the rich, well-balanced qualities of this Sauvage junmai daiginjo. Appropriately named for the potent, raw flavours Kuheiji draws from their own harvests of native Omachi sake rice, polishing these plump rice grains to 50% is all that's needed to unlock their rich fruity notes and invigorating herbal aromas, while producing a light sake with a classic, umami mouthfeel. Skilfully brewed and slowly matured, the mild, soothing fragrance of ripe banana introduces this junmai daiginjo, gently leading you through the zesty citrus and botanical notes that give this wonderfully mellow sake its pleasantly bold, traditional character. Crisp and refreshing on the finish, we recommend enjoying this junmai daiginjo chilled from a wine glass so you can take the time to truly appreciate its robust depth.
