Shintaro Junmai Karakuchi
Brand Hamakawa Shonten
Refreshing, light-bodied, smooth finish, mild, fresh acidity. Very well balanced. Best served chilled but may also be served warm.
Named after the historical Japanese leader Shintaro Nakaoka.
“By Hamakawa Shonten of Kochi Prefecture in Shikoku. Virtually no information on the label (nor anywhere else). Apparently a sake with a bit of a cult following, named after Shintaro Nakaoka, a political figure of the late 19th century, and a Kochi native, the label is full of little expressions which I can only assume are attributed to him. - V
