Konishi Gold - Daiginjo 720ml
Fruity aroma with light flavour; great for wine lovers
Winner of Grand Gold Medal (2014) and Gold Medal (2015 & 2019) 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. Founded in 1550 in Hyogo prefecture, Konishi Shuzo is the oldest brewery in Japan to have been owned by a single family.
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 is a delicate fruity fragrance with citrus, cherry & pear. Light-bodied, clean, elegant and simple with low acidity and delicate citrus, cucumber & pear flavours.
Highly drinkable at a superb price.
