tasting notes

The aroma initially opens with the fruitiness and subtle sweetness of Japanese pear. Upon swirling, the floral and slightly sharp scent of honeysuckle arises. Despite its vibrant and floral aroma, the mouthfeel is pleasantly light, reminiscent of a soft ourin (Japanese green apple). The aftertaste is also relatively light. This sake would pair well with Japanese dishes using white fish, or mildly sweet desserts and wagashi (traditional Japanese sweets).
narai sankei is brewed from rice variety Sankei Nishiki, a name which translates to “blessing from the mountains.” Only registered in 2020, it is a young rice variety bred from Miyama Nishiki, a Nagano sake rice known to be especially well-suited for sake brewing. The sake is characterized by its fresh green aromas that evoke a sense of nature, and clean mouthfeel reminiscent of a clear river. A light effervescence is accompanied by a refreshing yet rich flavor.

Our brewery is nestled in the beautiful townscape of Narai-juku, a historic and well-preserved town in Nagano Prefecture. narai uses the fresh mountain water of nearby Kiso Valley, flowing from an altitude of over 1,000m. The water is characterized by its clarity and smooth, rounded texture, brought about by a rare water hardness of less than 25. We hope you enjoy narai, a sake that expresses the beautiful nature of Nagano.
