International Wine Challenge (IWC) 2018 Aged Sake Division Gold

"Yamabuki aged-sake Gold (720ml)" is a saké based on a 10-year old vintage, blended with a variety of aged-sake up to 20-years in age. Craftsmen with deep knowledge of the particularities of each year's aged-sake create a finely balanced blend of aged-sake of different vintages. The amber color of the saké is brought out to its fullest beauty over the years of aging, and you are able to taste and smell its barrel-aged sweetness and aroma. At the same time, the saké also has a crisp, refreshing feel that makes it pair well with shellfish or richer dishes. In addition to winning 6 gold medals at the "International Wine Challenge (IWC)", which is renowned as the premier wine contest in the world, the saké has gained a reputation as a first tier aged-sake throughout the world, and is served in Michelin star restaurants internationally.
