Sho Chiku Bai Classic Junmai
Do you crave an oaky Chardonnay at the end of the day? Or is a velvety Merlot more your style? You can get the flavor of both when you purchase our award-winning Sho Chiku Bai Classic Junmai. When you serve it warm or at room temperature, the flavor changes, giving you the best of two worlds. You don't have to choose between flavors tonight — just pull out a bottle of classic Junmai sake, and work your way from one flavor profile to the next over a lingering meal. With a savory complex taste, it is the best sake for food-pairing sake and great served both chilled or warmed.
Served chilled this Classic Junmai Sake offers a very fine texture with harmonious aromas and flavors of macadamia nuts, Chai spice (cardamom, nutmeg), vanilla, heavy cream, and freshly sliced bread.
Served at room temperature, notes of mineral, creme fraiche, sourdough bread, custard, umami, and apples emerge.
When warmed to around 100º F., the texture and flavor build, bringing out more intense umami while still retaining softness of texture. Savory elements of salted custard, cocoa nib, banana bread, toasted nuts, and mineral are evident.
Sake: Part of a Long Japanese Tradition
Sake has been around longer than many other traditions associated with Japan. The Imperial Court served sake more than 1,000 years ago during big events such as rituals and special celebrations. Later, many Japanese began drinking sake during everyday occurrences, no longer waiting until a special occasion. The popularity of the drink spread around the world. Today, sake has become a staple across the West and enjoys growing recognition in America as an alternative to traditional wine and beer.
