Junmai Daiginjo

Since 1620, Uno Shuzo has been making sake in Fukui Prefecture, which is known for its sake production.  The Uno brewery focuses on using the premium Yamada Nishiki rice for its high water absorption rate and large starchy core, which gives this Junmai Daiginjo its floral, yet dry profile.  This sake is a great accompaniment to food.
