Yamamoto Junmai Ginjo Wain (720ml) 山本 純米吟醸 和韻

A magical marriage of Chardonnay wine yeast and Akita's UT-2 sake yeast produces a sensational outcome. The Chardonnay wine yeast provides a distinctlively refreshing acidity more akin to white wine, while fruity Ginjo aromas are developed from UT-2. In tandem with the rusticity of locally cultivated Akita rice, the final product is truly transformational.

和韻、Wain, meaing harmony, is a cleaver play on words highlighting both the unusual use of a wine yeast in sake and the harmony achieved by combining the two yeasts, two organisms that rarely have a chance to play together.

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.
