Iwa 5 - Assemblage 2

No rating
720 ml
  • A Layered Delight


    Assemblage 2, crafted by IWA Sake of Japan, is a testament to the innovative fusion of traditional sake brewing and modern blending techniques.


    This unique sake, developed under the guidance of Richard Geoffroy, former Chef de Cave for Dom Pérignon, offers a harmonious blend of diverse rice varieties and yeast strains. Its production, influenced by both Japanese sake traditions and Western wine techniques, results in a sake that stands out for its balance, complexity, and adaptability to various culinary experiences.


    Assemblage 2 is a sophisticated journey through varied aromas and flavors. It is characterized by its rich umami and glycerol mid-palate, followed by a freshness and crispness that makes a lasting impression. The sake's flavor profile evolves as it warms, revealing floral notes, winter melon, pear, and a hint of Chinese rock sugar, intertwined with a subtle spiciness and a touch of white pepper.


    This sake's complexity and silkiness are akin to the smooth closing of a Bentley car door or the clear ring of a Riedel wine glass.


    Produced in Tateyama, Toyama, Assemblage 2 is an expression of the pursuit of balance and harmony in sake-making. The blending process, undertaken remotely by Geoffroy during the pandemic, illustrates a remarkable commitment to quality despite logistical challenges. This sake is a blend of rice varieties such as Yamada Nishiki, Gohyakumangoku, and Omachi, paired with five different yeast strains.


    It has the inherent ability to adjust to a range of flavors, from delicate to robust. This sake is ideal for accompanying various dishes, from lighter salads to rich, savory meats, and even spicy and fatty dishes. Its unique character allows it to be a constant companion through an entire meal, complementing successive dishes with ease.
