Varietal: Kannomai Rice
Region: Chugoku, Japan
A newly developed cold-hardy rice variety and a specific milling rate of precisely 68% give this sake its unique full body and smoky salinity. Textural smoky-sweet layers are balanced by a prominent acidity that leads to a malty, dry finish. The flavor profile lends itself to equally sweet and savory foods, like grilled teriyaki chicken or sweet potato gnocci.
