Featuring a very understated aroma, this sake is drier and softer than “Hakurakusei”.
The beautiful and delicate, yet with a strong presence, illustrates the depth of “Hakutsurunishiki”, the rice used to brew this sake.
When the glass is lightly swirled, an elegant, white peach-like aroma releases and when consumed a youthful and lively green apple fills one’s palate.
We recommend pairing this sake with the latter half of the meal.
The Hakutsuru Sake Brewing Company developed the original sake rice “Hakutsurunishiki” with the intent to “create a sake rice that matches the quality of Yamadanishiki.”
Currently, more than a dozen sake breweries in the sake industry brew and work with this rice.
Debut: Registered as a formal rice variety by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in 2007.
Mother: “Yamadaho,” also the mother of “Yamadanishiki”
Father: Wataribune No. 2, a very close relative of the father of Yamadanishiki (the actual father, Short-stalked Wataribune, no longer exists; Wataribune No. 2, is a closely related rice variety)
Characteristics: A large grain and a large shinpaku that does not crack easily when polished. Low protein and lipid content. It is relatively easy to cultivate as the rice is short and does not easily fall over.
Fresh, light, and sharp.
