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

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.

山本酒造の低アルコール酒で、アルコール度数は14度と穏やか。フェミニンなラベルの色使いと軽やかな風味で、女性にも大人気の春期限定酒「うきうき山本」。心が弾むフレッシュな果実の香りと、後味に明るい酸味が心地よく広がり、それらが見事に調和します。山本酒造の日本酒はそれぞれ気分を表現して造られていますが、「うきうき」は極寒の秋田の冬が終わりを告げ、世界に色彩が戻ってくるときに感じる喜びを上手に表現しています。

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.

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.
