When a small but renowned sake producer, Sakiya, immersed since over 150 years in the heart of the Japanese Alps, meets one of the most beloved and visionary DJs in the world and a passionate sake connoisseur for over twenty years, Richie Hawtin, a special product is born, Enter.sake.
Not just an excellent quality sake, which gradually rises from the Honjozo of the Black version to the peaks of the Junmai Daiginjo of the Gold version, but a unique and extraordinary project of introduction to sake, which intends to offer the best of a still little known world outside Japan.
Produced from the purest waters coming from the springs of the Kitashitara district, in the Chūbu region, Black sake is a Honjozo, which means it requires a 65% rice milling (aka Seimai buai, 精米歩合) and is produced with a slight addition of alcohol, which gives it body and fragrance.
The result is a clean pure style of sake, with white mountain flowers on the nose. It has a wonderful clean and soft silky texture. The cleansing acidity also provides good structure and there is a subtle fruitiness with hints of mango, peach and pineapple.
180 ml, 14.5% alc., with an ideal serving temperature between 8° and 15° C.
Perfect to match with dishes such as ramen, sushi, but also oysters, it represents an ideal first approach to appreciate the best of sake.
