At this time, Shinsei is only sold in the domestic Japan market.
Due to the limited number, Shinsei is currently unavailable for international sale.
Shinsei’s aromas are fresh and clean, bringing nuances of white peach, Muscat grape, Japanese pear and other fruity elements, alongside mint and other herbs, with a touch of white flower. Aerated, Shinsei’s aromas turn creamy and bring forward steamed rice and sour cream.
On the palate, Shinsei is fresh, smooth and dry, with a pleasing, slowly spreading acidity that integrates with gentle effervescence for an impression of astounding freshness.
Shinsei brings a smooth, silky finish with a mild tartness, minerality and umami. The finish is long, yet both delicate and structured.
Shinsei shines brightest with pairings. Its minerality meshes perfectly with seafood; particularly shellfish. Juicy meat dishes incorporating steamed or braised chicken or pork work exceptionally together with Shinsei, while the beverage’s creamy, sparkling texture is a natural fit for dishes incorporating cheese or butter. Crunchy fried foods also present a pleasing contrast. From aperitif to main course, Shinsei is versatile and ready for pairing with most any course.
A light sparkle brings silken creaminess
To achieve secondary fermentation, unrefined sake is added to a completed sake prior to bottling to stimulate additional fermentation. This secondary fermentation naturally produces gas that dissolves into the sake and brings a lightly sparkling quality to the finished product that is creamy and pleasing on the palate.
A unique method brings a layered profile
Ordinarily, sake is made with three simple ingredients: Rice, water and koji starter. Shinsei is instead made using a unique method that replaces some of the water with completed sake. This brings a layered, deeply complex, noble quality to the finished Shinsei that is unlike any sake around.
Crisp, clear water from a famed source
Hakushū is historically a region of Yamanashi Prefecture that receives subsoil runoff water from the nearby Mt. Kaikoma. This water is famed throughout Japan for its fresh, soft and crisp characteristics. Mt. Kaikoma water is said to particularly agree with human biology, and bestows fresh, natural flavors to Shinsei.
