Kisaki 50 Junmai Daiginjo Sake 720ml

$59.99
Kisaki 50 Junmai Daiginjo Sake 720ml
The little sibling to the Kisaki 28, the 50 is a beautiful bottle at a lower price point but still shows the polish of Kisaki's Sakes. I've had a bottle open for a few weeks now, and after tasting it again, it was still surprisingly fresh, gorgeous, and even a little more "open." We have a few bottles of this great sake left, which is typically only available in Japan, and right now, we have the only bottles, not for restaurants in the USA.

Interest in Sake has pushed us to find some new and exciting bottles, and we have a rare one that just arrived, Kisaki 50. A Junmai Daiginjo rarely seen outside of Japan, we were able to score the only cases that our supplier had, leaving us very impressed after trying a bottle last night. Kisaki isn't a brand that we have seen much of before and is a challenging bottle to find. It has been circulating different Sake events and competitions, drawing the attention of some Savvy Sake drinkers as a sort of breakout star over the past year. Kiaski is based in Toyama Prefecture, located in the Chūbu region of Honshu, directly opposite Tokyo. Kisaki is pushing a variety of Sake known as Domaine Sake which means everything is in-house and not outsourced anywhere while also striving to deliver a Terroir or sense of place. The rice is cultivated by Kisaki itself rather than purchasing rice, much like wineries that grow their grapes instead of purchasing fruit. This gives them infinitely more control over the quality and selection of the rice, in this case, Yamadanishiki, known as the king of rice. Only selecting the best, it is said that the quality of Kisaki's rice is so good that many wish to keep it for themselves like treasure. The master brewer oversees the polishing of the rice (in this instance, 50% polish) and will perform a quality control selection again, removing grains, leaving only the absolute best rice behind. This excellent rice is met with the highest quality water in Japan sourced from Tateyama Renpo or Tateyama Mountian range. Often called the Japanese Alpes, the water collected here is from snowmelt that filters through the mountain and is incredible, perfect for the production of Sake with an excellent balance of acidity and minerals.
Kisaki 50 is a deep and elegant Sake with fantastic purity showing expressive fruity flavors of melon, lychee, and yuzu complemented honeysuckle, beeswax, kaffir lime, and sweet peppers. The elegance and purity are truly noticeable on the detailed and smooth palate, feeling like a soft cloud billowing over the tongue and showing a tame steamed rice sweetness. It builds in complexity with a beautiful balance between richness and acidity that leaves the mouth watering with an energetic mineral and citrus-tinged finish. Kisaki 50 is excellent Sake and the perfect pairing for Sushi and other seafood and even with some mild cheeses. Served chilled, it shows a bit more focus, and if you let it warm up in the glass, it shows a bit more complexity. As mentioned, this is a rare Sake, and right now, we have the only bottles of Kisaki 50 available in the USA.
