Kizan Sanban Sake - Chikuma Nishiki


Go Better

Perhaps because there’s no better accompaniment for caviar, sashimi or oysters, sake is no longer purely the domain of Japanophiles and intolerable wine nerds.  Direct from the alps of Nagano, Chikuma Nishiki’s unfermented sake is like a French champagne for the uninitiated: fresh, light hearted and completely beguiling.  The most delicately flavoured and sought-after of all sakes, Kinzan Sanban is a ginjo sake made from riced polished down to 55% of its original size and combines a rich, citrusy palate with a heady aroma.  It has been chosen especially by Master Sommelier Sebastian Crowther and comes from a kura that has been brewing sake since 1681.  Serve it chilled and drink it slowly.
