Kaze No Mori Alpha Type 2 720ml

Kaze No Mori Alpha Type 2 720ml

$88.80 AUD

This superpremium Junmai Daiginjo is made from locally grown Akitsuho rice milled to a mere 22% seimaibui. (Only 22% of the original rice grain remaining. This is currently the lowest in the Sakeshop portfolio). 

In comparison to its Kaze no Mori stablemates, Alpha Type 2 is quite restrained, but in terms of the greater sake world it is an exuberant palate of juicy nashi, melon, blood plum, orange and lemongrass with a perfect balance of sweet and sour. Aroma of apricot and blossom.

While many Genshu (undiluted sake) are brewed to an ABV as high as 20% this is a very comfortable 16% ABV. Alpha Type 2 is also Nama (unpasteurised) and to retain as much of the original raw flavour as possible it has not undergone any charcoal filtration.

Quite remarkably Kyokai #7 yeast was used along with super low fermentation temperatures to create intense fruit on the palate. Although Kyokai #7 yeast is one of the most popular strains used in today's brewing circles it is not really used as a Ginjo yeast.

A superb sake, very limited production. 

This sake has not been pasteurised and should be stored refrigerated to prevent spoilage.
