Commercial Description

Zenkuro Junmai Daiginjo is crafted by hand using a unique combination of highly polished Yamadanishiki and Gohyakumangoku sake rice from Japan, and soft pure water from NZ’s Southern Alps.

It has expressive aromas of ripe peaches, nashi pear, kumquat and green melon. Strawberry, white nectarine and fennel notes are evident with a background of perfumed white lilies. Juicy kiwi fruit and pear sweep smoothly over the palate, barely disguising a backbone of minerality with a crisp, clean finish. Balance, light texture and a restrained elegance are the key elements.

Enjoy with your favourite food from the sea, lightly seared or raw such as, sashimi, ceviche or sushi. It will suit most shellfish and is perfect for the sweetness of scampi, or paua. This sake suits the spectrum of light meats like fish, chicken, veal or thinly sliced pork. It pairs beautifully with garden vegetables, Caesar salad, salad nicoise and green pea risotto. With cheese - a pairing with camembert, brie or mozzarella is recommended.

Serve chilled, 5 to 15 degrees C. At cooler temperatures you will experience more of the sake’s acidity and minerality, and when served at warmer temperatures the pear and peach fruitiness will open up. Enjoy the different approaches to this sensational sake. Complete satisfaction assured!

Craig Metz…

Top drop. Though not as familiar with sake as with whiskey, I’ve been to enough Japanese restaurants (and once studied in Osaka many moons ago) to know… this is a very good sake. Do yourself a favour if you purchase this… warm it up in boiled water (using a tokkuri or ceramic vessel), not in a microwave.
