This is one on Nambu Bijin's Junmai Daiginjo "Beauty Series". The Junmai Ginjō Yamada Nishiki Shimpaku (純米大吟醸 心白 山田錦) sports a white label representing the colour of sake rice and a design reminiscent of a single rice grain. It has a very good balance between gorgeous ginjō flavour and the soft taste of Yamada Nishiki sake rice. it is semi-sweet and fragrant.

About the brewery:

Nanbu Bijin Brewery is located in Ninohe City, Iwate Prefecture and was founded in 1902. At that time, the head of the local Kuji family operated a soy sauce brewery business. Kuji Sueta established the first sake brewery in Ninohe based on the same technologies as the soy sauce brewery. The first production volume of sake was estimated at 7.5 kg and was produced with water pulled from Takeuchi Shrine. In 2001, the company was renamed from Kuji Brewery to its current name, Nanbu Bijin (南部美人). "Nanbu Bijin" means "southern beauty" and refers to the beauty of the Ninohe region. The brewery's motto is to "brew sake that makes people smile like bright sunshine".

On 25 January 2019, the brewery acquired a vegan certification after acquiring a kosher certification in 2013. All of the brewery's overseas exports now carry a vegan certification, the world's first vegan-certified Japanese sake worldwide.

This was our first junmai daiginjo from Nambu Bijin's Beauty Series (and it won't be the last one). We used our Riedel glasses for degustation. It has a fruity nose with hints of peaches and strawberries and overtones of koji—a light and fresh body reminiscent of a chablis.
