Nakano Tokusen Kunizakari Junmai Ginjo Handago Yeast 1801 (特撰國盛 純米吟醸 半田郷 酵母1801)

Nakano Tokusen Kunizakari Junmai Ginjō Handagō Yeast 1801 (特撰國盛 純米吟醸 半田郷 酵母1801) is made by polishing Wakamizu, an Aichi sake rice variety, to 55% and slowly brewing it at low temperatures. It has a gorgeous aroma unique to ginjō-brewing and the rich flavour of junmai.

Handagō uses Wakamizu, a rice grain grown in the Chita region. The rice-polishing ratio was carefully adjusted so as not to let the aroma overpower its taste. Handagō pairs well not only with meat and seafood but also with a wide variety of dishes. Reminiscent of Japan's characteristic seasons, Handagō's mellow aroma and well-rounded sweetness are delectable when paired with food.

The Handago opens with a refreshing and fruity nose, inviting anticipation. The initial sip reveals a subtle sweetness, a gentle ginjo aroma and a medium dryness. Subdued acidity and bitterness emerge as they traverse the palate, creating a delicate interplay. The mellow finish carries hints of herbs and anise, while the transformation at room temperature renders it even more well-rounded and smoother. Overall, it is a very palatable choice for discerning connoisseurs.
