Brewery: Hanazakari
Rank: Daiginjo
Rice Polishing Rate: 39%
Alcohol: 15.3%

The best Sake produced from one of the very few breweries still using a traditional manual press (shibori). To obtain the absolute best Sake this Daiginjo is made with the authentic mesh drip bag method. This natural, unforced, time-consuming style produces a much cleaner Sake devoid of off-flavours.

Junmai Daiginjo 39 has a Ginjo fragrance similar to green apples and melon and is gentle and comfortable. The initial sweetness quickly develops into a well-balanced flavor with the umami and acidity leaving a crisp, rounded, slightly dry aftertaste from the use of soft water.

This Sake works particularly well with sushi and soba.
