Winner of Grand Gold Medal (2014) and Gold Medal (2015) at the Fine Sake Awards, Konishi Gold is a result of years of research and development by the experimental arm of Konishi Shuzo that releases sake under the family name.
Konishi bring their 450 years + of brewing knowledge to bear and, using their ‘hiyashibori’ pressing method (i.e. pressing the sake in very cold temperatures with as little exposure to air as possible to limit oxidation), produce this brilliant Daiginjo. On the nose it’s a delicate fruity fragrance with citrus, cherry & pear. Light-bodied, clean, elegant and simple with low acidity and delicate citrus, cucumber & pear flavours.
Will go nicely with cream cheese, lamb cubes, ramon, grilled meats & steak or sushi
