Masumi Kaya Junmai 720ml
SHIRO (White) is Masumi's “session sake,” light enough to enjoy all night. Mild aromas of banana and apple lead into a palate that is gently sweet and brightened by acidity and lingering savory umami.
Tasting: Aromas of white peach, banana, steamed rice, with hints of sour cream. Bright yet gentle aroma. There is a mild sweetness pervaded by the umami of rice, and a modicum of acidity and bitterness that provides balance and contrast. The texture is soft and spreads in the palate along with a slightly milky character that reverberates peacefully in the finish.
Pairing: Fig Shiroae, mozzarella and white peach salad, smoked salmon and okara ae The sweetness of the sake and the food lend a soft texture to the tasting experience.Name: Sanka (Mountain Flowers)
