Junmai Namagenshu Ju-jiasahi Kairyoomachi70 Magena Nigori

The Junmai Namagenshu Ju-jiasahi Kairyoomachi70 Magena Nigori is one of my favorite types of cloudy sake. It is brewed in a sake brewery located in Izumo City, Shimane Prefecture.

Izumo City is home to one of the oldest shrines in Japan, the Izumo Taisha, and is also well-known as a tourist destination.

Much like the Okuharima Junmai Kasseisukuikumi Nigorishu Nama, the Junmai Namagenshu Ju-jiasahi Kairyoomachi70 Magena Nigori undergoes a secondary fermentation within the bottle, allowing for an enjoyable carbonation. The taste is fruity, similar to pear, and its distinguishing characteristics are a sweetness that’s not too overpowering, along with a tartness and a dry finish.

The color of this sake is cloudy, yet somewhat translucent. It may be subtle, but you can notice the effervescence of the tiny carbonation bubbles. After opening the bottle, this sake is typically served as hot sake in this shop about two days later. This makes it a rare treat that can be enjoyed only on the day it’s opened and the following day.

Magena is a dialect from Izumo City, and it means ‘amazing’.
