This vintage saké is lavishly smooth and flavoursome, comparable with a very complex white wine. This medium-bodied saké can be enjoyed now or aged over the next 20 to 25 years.
This is a kijoshu style of sake, created using one of Japan’s most historic brewing methods, where additional seishu (saké) rather than water is added during the brewing process to slow down the fermentation process. Made by the Nambu Shuzo Sake Brewery in the depths of Fukui prefecture, this sweet variety of saké is best enjoyed cold or at room temperature and, being a vintage, is able to be kept for up to 25 years.
Hints of classic Japanese fresh cedar wood and rounded peach indulge the senses, with a delicate palate of green tea, spiced chilli, all backed by abundant fig, prunes and papaya-reminiscent sweetness. Residual sugar means this saké will become drier with years to come, altering its body with yet more complex tones and refined flavours. Popular with Western palates, due to its resemblance to a fine Sauternes, Kabuki is great with sushi, chicken, sweet and sour dishes and works fantastically with dessert, be it Mediterranean or Eastern.
