Kikuizumi Hitosuji Junmai Sparkling
The nose on this superb sparkling sake is a great collection of steamed rice, lemon peel, straw, ocean water, bread, and yeasty aromas. Stop the presses! Say hello to world class sparkling sake that is umami loaded, crisp, compact, and dry; very much like a Brut-style sparkling wine. Featuring a 12% ABV, this beauty drinks bright, layered, rich, and balanced with good bubble action and gentle hints of steamed rice, apple, green grape, pear, plum, cooked apple spice, and chocolate covered cherry flavors. To say this brew is just another sparkling sake is an understatement as it won the Trophy for the entire sparkling sake field at the 2019 International Wine Challenge. Great for gifting and great to have on just an ordinary evening when you want a little of the extraordinary! Use a Champagne flute and serve chilled.
