As a result of the mastery of the kimoto craft, Shirakabegura Kimoto Junmai presents a robust body and has traditionally been served warm to bring out its earthy aromas and flavors of apple, creamy cheese, and spice. Recently, chilling has equally become favored, creating lighter, delicately nuanced aromas of vanilla, flowers, stone fruit, melon, and sweet milk.
Clear and bright, as Shirakabegura Kimoto sake warms slightly in the glass, its round, smooth texture and savory aspects become more pronounced.
Temperature: Serve chilled, at around 50˚ F, at room temperature, or warmed to about 100-105˚ F.
Food Pairing Suggestions:
This sake enhances gently-flavored items that match its smooth, velvety texture. Complementary foods include mild, triple-cream cheese, risotto, fatty meats such as Japanese wagyu beef, and fish such as toro. To match the texture but contrast the flavor, fresh uni is a good pairing choice.
Soft, round white wines with flavors of tree fruit and flowers, such as Pinot Gris and Marsanne with no new oak.
