Rei Junmai Daiginjo is a sake that screams versatility in its pairing. Even though it’s a Junmai Daiginjo, which means the sake rice has been polished down to atleast 50%, the ginjo flavor/aroma is not as profound as other Junmai Daiginjos. The reason for this might be due to the fact that the sake rice used is Californian Calrose rice which does not have a dense core (Shinpaku) like other traditional sake rice, meaning less starch and milder flavor. To the nose, you will get a distant honeydew with slight jasmine aroma. In the mouth, it gives you a very clean, full-body and semi-dry mouthfeel with slightly acidic finish. Shochikubai is a well-known domestic brand and using domestic rice, the brewery created a versatile, affordable, easy to drink and simple Junmai Daiginjo that can be enjoyed by wide-array of American palettes.
