Sankeinishiki is a very new rice strain that was developed by the Nagano Prefecture Agricultural Laboratory in 2017 and only recently registered in 2020. A cross breed between the king of sake rice Yamadanishiki and Yumenshinano, Sankeinishiki is able to withstand the harsh Nagano winters.
Light and juicy with a savoury fruity spice on the nose and complex stone fruit flavours. Expect big things from sakes made from this rice.
