Bunkajin Junmai Ginjo Omachi 720ml
Establishing a new foundation, overlaid with the tropical character typical of Ginjo grade sake, the “Bunkajin” Junmai Ginjo is one of three masterpieces of that style offered by this producer. With the other two making use of the Yamada Nishiki and Gin no Yume rice varieties, this limited edition uses Omachi rice exclusively. Being the oldest and most primitive rice strain grown in Japan, Omachi presents a technical challenge that all sake brewers wish to face at least – and, owing to the difficulty, perhaps only – once in their career. The rich body is immediately apparent, following quickly by acidity, before settling into a decadent and beguiling finish.
