This sake has been handcrafted with passion at Zenkuro Sake Brewery in Queenstown. Established in 2015, Zenkuro is New Zealand's first and only sake brewery.
It has expressive aromas of ripe peaches, nashi pear, kumquat and green melon. Strawberry, white nectarine and fennel notes are evident with a background of perfumed white lilies. Juicy kiwi fruit and pear sweep smoothly over the palate, barely disguising a backbone of minerality with a crisp, clean finish. Balance, light texture and a restrained elegance are the key elements.
Serve chilled, 5 to 15 degrees C. At cooler temperatures you will experience more of the sake’s acidity and minerality, and when served at warmer temperatures the pear and peach fruitiness will open up. Enjoy the different approaches to this sensational sake.
