UKA Black Label Organic Junmai Daiginjo
Uka (羽化), in this case meaning “emergence”, is an exciting new project that combines American grown rice with Japanese water and brewing ingenuity to make a sake that is truly unique.
Clear, day-bright nectar with aromas of strawberry, pineapple, and a whisper of anise. Full-bodied, balanced, and fruity with a hint of honey. A silky, luscious texture and a long finish. Great with unagi. Best served chilled, try at room temperature.
