So our First Sake we have is Kimoto Junmai
Kimoto Junmai is a traditional method of creating shubo. Where brewers create a separate batch to laboriously pound the rice and koji into a smooth paste using wooden poles to speed the process of conversion of sake. This is method is known to as the yeast starter.
This Kimoto junmai method would tend to be much more richer and heavy in acidity . But master’s Hiroshi sake is mild with smooth mouth-feel easily drinkable.
Our Next dish is:
So the third Course is
So the next sake is Junmai Gold Sake
This sake has rice koji 4 times as much as usual. It emphasises umami and sourness. Although sweet and sour, it has a mysterious light aftertaste. It is a new sense of sake that enjoys umami and colour.
Preferably to have at room temperature to balance out the rich umami flavour sweetness giving you the dry light taste which doesn’t linger on the palate.
So the last dish is the dessert which has an interesting name.
A South African liqueur made from the Marula fruit, it is oak aged then carefully blended to a rich smoothness with the finest natural cream;.
