SAKERISE

GYO-KOU

GYO-KOU Limited Quantity

Brewed inspired by the light of hope at dawn that heralds the start of a new day, GYO-KOU is a new style of sake. This sake is made from Yuki Megami, a Daiginjo sake rice developed in Yamagata, and is characterised by its concentration, refinement and beautifully lasting aftertaste. The aroma is like that of a melon reaching perfect maturity after a few hours. The sweetness, tender deliciousness and soft acidity gradually change in the palate, creating a long, well-balanced and elegant aftertaste. Serve in a wine glass by all means in order to enjoy the aromas. We recommend a glass that is smooth and easy on the palate, such as a standard white wine glass. As for the temperature, we recommend 5°C to 12°C right out of the fridge. Enjoy the change in flavour as the temperature changes. The flavour of the sake may not fully open up immediately after opening the bottle. In this case, it is recommended to keep the bottle in the fridge and allow it to air for 2-3 days after opening.
