Shirakabegura Tokubetsu Junmai


Tokubetsu Junmai,
1.8 L

The flavors and aromas of this sake change substantially with temperature, but remain complex and nuanced. When warmed to 100º -105º F., it is savory and full-bodied, with aromas and flavors of white mushroom, bran, salted cucumber and umami, balanced by subtle hints of banana and white flowers.

At room temperature, this sake’s fruity aspects become more pronounced, with notes of melon, cream and lightly salted cucumber peel. When chilled, the aroma is fresh, with the scents of green apple and fennel joined on the palate by the flavors of watermelon rind, cucumber and mineral.

Pairing Suggestions

The complexity, full body and fine, silky texture of Tokubetsu Junmai sake make it enjoyable to drink on its own. It pairs very well with most mildly flavored foods, including steamed or grilled white fish, white pizza, sushi, linguini with clams, savory custards, and snacks such as popcorn. A savory cheese, like gouda, will also work very well.

Wine Comparisons

Minerally, lightly fruited white wines with medium body, or red Burgundy
