Sake Selection2018 Sparkling Sake Division Platinum, Trophy Sparkling Sake

"Masumi awa-sake Sparkling" is a sparkling Japanese sake which has undergone secondary fermentation that was launched after over 10 years of experimentation by Nagano's famous sake brand "Masumi". This sake is carefully brewed using the polished rice grains of "Kinmon-nishiki," a sake rice cultivar produced locally in Nagano's Shinshu Suwa, a plateau basin blessed with pristine water and a cool climate at the foot of the Kiragamine mountains. As this sake is laboriously produced individually by hand via the processes of remuage (riddling) and degorgement (removal of yeast deposits) over the course of several months, it exists in limited quantities and is a rare product. The technique of secondary fermentation where yeast is returned into the bottle for secondary fermentation results in bubbles as the sake is carefully aged for over a year and a half. This sake is unique for its delicate streams of bubbles and its subtle aroma of rice. This sparkling sake can be served alongside both Japanese dishes as well as Western dishes such as French cuisine, and is the perfect choice of alcohol for making your celebratory occasions even more special. This authentic sparkling Japanese sake has also been awarded the Platinum Prize at Sake Selection2018, an international competition held in Brussels.

[About "Masumi"]
This brand whose name has been used in sake breweries for over 350 years and was derived from the "Masumi Mirror," a treasure of the local Suwa Taisha shrine, has a long history dating all the way back to the late Edo period (18th~19th century). Motivated by their philosophy of "striving to become better, nurturing talents, selecting the best rice, and pursuing only authentic sake without selling gimmicks," their sake has dutifully kept the taste refined through the hard work of successive generations of famous brewers, and remains one of the leading sake in Nagano prefecture today.
