tasting notes

The aroma initially opens with the sweetness of konpeito (Japanese sugar candy) and sugarcane, accompanied by the herbal fragrance of sweet basil. Upon swirling, the nuances blend harmoniously. Subsequently, the cool and refreshing aroma of hard rice arises. Despite the sweetness in its aroma, the flavor features a more gentle, slightly milky acidity. Combined with the sake's refined texture, this results in a lighter body than anticipated. As the flavor progresses, the fullness of soft rice emerges. With its delicate sweetness, this sake pairs well with Japanese cuisine, but can also be paired richer Western dishes, such as sautéed lobster or abalone, and buttery grilled vegetables.
narai kinmon is brewed from Kinmon Nishiki, a rare rice variety bred from Yamada Nishiki and only produced in a very small part of Nagano. It features a delicately sweet aroma and a soft, gently effervescent mouthfeel. A harmonious blend of moderate acidity and subtle sweetness culminates in a light and well-balanced flavor. The umami of rice spreads in your mouth, giving it a distinctive sense of rounded depth and clarity.
