Tasting Notes

Importer Notes: Kizan Sanban is also Genshu [undiluted] but is naturally only 15% alcohol, as when it is brewed the fermentation is stopped early to retain a high sugar content [which therefore reduces the alcohol]. This residual sugar combined with its refreshing acidity creates a smooth rounded palate with flavours of apple and aniseed.

Importer Notes:

Style: Junmai Ginjō Nama Genshu

Serve: Chilled

This Junmai [Pure Rice sake] Kizan Sanban is a fruity and full-bodied Ginjō, where the rice has been polished down to 55% of its original size [to be classified Ginjō it must be polished down to 60% or less of it's original size]. The Kizan Sanban is made in 2 tanks, one of which is pasteurised [known as hiire], but the version we enjoy the best and choose to import for Australia, because of its more lively, fresh palate is the Nama or unpasteurised version. Kizan Sanban is also Genshu [undiluted] but is naturally only 15% alcohol, as when it is brewed the fermentation is stopped early to retain a high sugar content [which therefore reduces the alcohol]. This residual sugar combined with its refreshing acidity creates a smooth rounded palate with flavours of apple and aniseed. Most Ginjō Sake produced tends to offer predominately aroma with very little flavour profile, however Kizan Sanban is virtually the opposite of this.
