About Japanese Sake
Seeking out the finest Japanese sake in Melbourne? Gyoza Gyoza is here to make sure your quest is a fruitful one! Japanese sake is an alcoholic beverage brewed primarily from rice and water. It resembles white wine in appearance, ranging from almost transparent to slightly yellow. The 13%–17% alcohol content of many sake varieties is slightly higher than that of wine, but sake also has a mild taste with little acidity and bitterness.
Unlike wine, in which alcohol is produced by fermenting sugar that is naturally present in grapes, Japanese sake is produced by a brewing process closer to that of beer, where the starch is converted into sugars before being converted to alcohol.
There are a lot of different types of sake, with different rice and different handling after fermentation, and all of them have different characteristics and unique flavours.
