Gunma Izumi Yamahai Junmai
The alluring nose of this sake has apple, melon, rose and mushroom notes that leads to a slightly off dry, very balanced, nuanced palate of mineral and pear. The Yamahai process uses the wild, but natural, yeast and provides this sake with distinct earthy notes, raisin, brown sugar, roasted oats and a long, dry finish.
Pair this with: Mushroom risotto, yakitori, sukiyaki, braised short ribs, grilled steak, pork belly
