*Sake Meter Value (SMV) or Nihonshudo
nihonshu=sake do = degree
SMV or Nihonshudo (Sake Meter Value) measures the density of sake relative to water, and this is the barometer for gauging the dryness or sweetness of the sake. The higher is the SMV or Nihonshudo, the drier is the sake.


“Isehikari” is a new variety of rice discovered in the rice fields of the Gods at Ise Shrine in 1989. It is rare, precious rice which is said to be the “Rice of God”.
It is Junmai sake with 70% rice polishing ratio.
First, the simple, earthy aroma derived from the rice slightly stands, then, thick tastes overlap with condensed attacks of nuts and grapefruits.
Soon after, the acidity slides on the tongue smoothly, and the umami runs throughout your mouth, leaving a lingering finish.
An aftertaste which is salty, with mineral flavors continues beautifully. It is made with umami flavors, typical of Junmaishu (pure rice wine). It may be served cold, but you can enjoy its different features in room temperature or slightly warmed up.
Compatibility with Japanese dishes : Sukiyaki, Lotus root pizza, Stir-fried eggplant and bell peppers with meat and miso sauce 
Compatibility with European (French) dishes : Chicken confit, grilled vegetables, white asparagus with Hollandaise sauce, Camembert, grilled meat, and amplifies the total taste.
This sake is a best match with steaks as well as couscous and ethnic dishes.
