Yamamoto Junmai Ginjo Uki Uki (720ml) 山本 純米吟醸 うきうき

$75.00

A low alcohol rendition from Yamamoto brewery, mildly diluted to the gentle ABV of 14%, giving the sake an ethereal presence, reminiscent of melting snow in the Spring. The Uki Uki (meaning "excitement") displays fresh fruity aromas and bright acidity on the back end spreading pleasantly across the palate, melding sweet and sour perfectly.

Each Yamamoto sake is made to represent a mood, for Uki Uki, the bright pink label says it all. It is the excitement felt when a frigid Akita winter is coming to an end and colour is returning to the world.

Yamamoto Brewery 山本酒造店

Among the aspects which make Yamamoto sake extraordinary are the intrepid and unusual products such as the Yamamoto Wine, a sake made with a combination of sake and chardonnay yeasts and matured in oak barrels and the Yamamoto Royal Flush, a sake made with five separate sake rice varieties and five separate yeasts, culminating in brews which are out of the box and captivating. Above all, Yamamoto sake is wonderfully easy drinking and vibrantly fresh tasting.
