Morgan LaCroix, Antoine Bertin and inderpal singh chiming in on one of my favorite wines on the planet last week - Chablis. Thanks!
This week: Daiginjo
If you see this on a bottle of sake, what does it indicate?
Long time reader, first-time contributor...
Daiginjo means big ginjo when translated. It is often the most prized bottling of the sake brewery. It represents the height of the brewmaster's ability. A minimum of 50% of the outer rice layers must be polished away to classify a sake as Daiginjo.
A light, aromatic, and fruit driven style of sake which can be served chilled. A minimum of 50% rice grain polished away, with a brewers distillate added.
And if no brewers distillate is added, it will be a Junmai Daiginjo.
