This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
This yamahai is juicy, acidic, with a hint of mint. Made with marigold yeast, the nose is fruity and floral (a bit like a daiginjo) and the hue is slightly golden. A golden or yellow color is often a characteristic of yamahai style sakes because they are aged for at least 2 years. This can affect the color of the sake, which could range from clear to light gold.
We’d recommend this sake to lovers of Viognier because of its soft and fruity build or fans of Chablis because of its acidity. Pair this unique yamahai at room temperature with herbed seafoods (mussels or white fish with parsley) or hummus spiced with cumin.
