Yamahai Junmai “Old Cabin”
Unlike most yamahais, Yuki No Bosha is mellow and elegant. Many sake drinkers are surprised that this is a yamahai because it does not have the gamey and funky character that most do. However, it still shows some of the nutty and oily dimensions of a yamahai.
U.S. National Sake Appraisal
International Wine Challenge
Overall, mellow and well balanced. Notes of roasted chestnuts, brown butter, and honey on the nose and palate; gentle acidity in the finish.
Enjoy from room temperature to mildly heated with pork belly, shabu shabu, and hard, nutty cheese.
