Christmas Fare & Saké Pairing
Our uniquely Australian Christmas full of the promise of summer sun, sea salt, flowering frangipani, palm and pandanus trees tossed by the echoes of tropical sea breezes. Share the celebration this year with your loved ones enjoying a delicious Christmas spread complemented by stunning sake designed to take things to the next level. Red on Red - the iridescent red-labelled Katsuyama Ken Junmai Ginjo Saké and the deeply lustrous Mutsu Hassen Red label Tokubetsu Junmai Saké.
Open the IWC World Champion Katsuyama Ken to toast your special celebration. The beautiful aromas of crisp red apple and white flowers setting the scene for a sake that complements the subtle umami of turkey licked by jus or glazed ham. The juicy, bright fruit flavours of this sake sing with the inherent sweetness of seafood.
The signature Mutsu Hassen Tokubetsu Junmai saké is a great all-rounder to have on your table. Pour it for your arriving guests and the gentle ripe melon and grape aromas will stimulate the senses. It has a smooth, generous feeling and flavours of blended nashi pear and rock melon play with the taste buds. The base notes of umami in this sake are subtle and it harmonises well with Christmas treats like seafood, traditional fare or even a fruity dessert course.
