Long-aged sake, Yamabuki Gold

Brewers who are attuned to the variations in each individual vintage are known to create blends of matured sake, in the pursuit of an exquisite balance – just as those in fortified wine and various spirits production also do. Yamabuki Gold consists of blended sake vintages between 10 and 20 years-of-age, giving it the complexion of polished amber, an aroma that reflects the cask maturation, and a resounding, layered sweetness. Its refreshing aftertaste prevents it from being cloying, however, making it a good match with crustaceans, such as shrimp or crab, and rich or fatty cuisine. A medal-winning sake for five consecutive years, including a gold, at the International Wine Challenge.
