As a result of the mastery of the kimoto craft, Shirakabegura Kimoto Junmai presents a robust body and has traditionally been served warm to bring out its earthy aromas and flavors of apple, creamy cheese, and spice. Recently, chilling has equally become favored, creating lighter, delicately nuanced aromas of vanilla, flowers, stone fruit, melon, and sweet milk.

Clear and bright, as Shirakabegura Kimoto sake warms slightly in the glass, its round, smooth texture and savory aspects become more pronounced.

Explore Japanese Rich Tradition With Sho Chiku Bai Shirakabegura Kimoto Junmai

For more than a thousand years, Japan has produced sake, a wine made from fermented rice. The beverage has become a part of the national identity and a treasured feature of Japanese culture. While sake was once reserved for special occasions, today it has become an everyday experience because of its huge rise in popularity. What's more, people in America love it just as much as those in Japan.

Pairing Suggestions

This sake enhances gently-flavored items that match its smooth, velvety texture. Complementary food include mild, triple-cream cheese, risotto, fatty meats such as Japanese wagyu beef, and fish such as toro. To match the texture but contrast the flavor, fresh uni is a good pairing choice.

Wine Comparisons

Soft, round white wines with flavors of tree fruit and flowers, such as Pinot Gris and Marsanne with no new oak.
