Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

A limited production Junmai-Daiginjo, made in small batches at Gekkeikan's Uchigura brewery, dedicated to micro-brewing only ultra premium sakes. Mild, fruity aroma with delicate notes of over-ripe cantaloupe and honeysuckle. Well-Balanced and exceptionally smooth with a long, clean finish. Horin is slowly fermented at low temperatures for a refined flavor.

Learn About Junmai-Daiginjo

Junmai-Daiginjo

Taking saké a level further than Ginjo, Daiginjo saké has a suimai buai of 50% - meaning that at least half (many producers do more) of the rice has been milled away, leaving only the purest starch in the center. Daiginjo is of the highest quality level saké, creating a delicate, fragrant, yet powerful saké. Flavor profiles can differ for Daiginjo, depending on the type of water and variety of rice used. This is the highest quality level for saké when it comes to degree of milling.
