Monsei Junmai-ginjo Vintage 2017 is a premium sake produced with 100% Miyama Nishiki brewer's rice cultivated in Kita-Azumino using specialized deep water cultivation methods and made by polishing the rice to 55%. Miyama Nishiki rice is prepared at nine contract farms within a 10km radius of the brewery. This rice is cultivated at higher water depths than standard rice, producing a thicker stalk and less rice yield, but in turn imparting more nutrients to each grain of rice and thickening the size of the inner white granule, making it ideal for special sake brews. The cool and clear underground waters of Japan's Northern Alps are referred to as "Treasure Water" for their quality. Among these, soft Onnamizu water from the Iyari Wetlands, a protected habitat in Nagano Prefecture and originating in thaw water, is used to produce this brew and give it a uniquely mellow flavor profile. In this way, this special bottled sake focuses exclusively on the best terroir brews. One notable feature is that the date of brewing is listed on the bottle, letting you compare different annual flavor profiles and aging. This brew, the Gold Label in the Monsei line, is a junmai ginjo with a gentle and pronounced aroma, with a clean flavor and lingering aftertaste. Pairs very well with all manner of dishes, and will enhance more sour and tart dishes to transform them into umami-rich meals. Though premium in quality, it is priced at an affordable rate.

The Monsei brand explained
This premium sake brand has a very rich and full-bodied umami flavor profile. This terroir sake is produced using clear and cool underground waters from Japan's Northern Alps referred to as "Treasure Water," as well as rice from deep water cultivation, a specialized technique used at contract farms within a 10km radius of the brewery, and only the middle yield of the mash being bottled. We are pleased to offer this beverage here from the first label, Monten, at an affordable pricepoint.
