This vibrant showstopper is beautifully soft and feminine, brewed by one of Japan's only female brewery owners and tojis. Brewed in Hiroshima, the birthplace of Ginjo sake, which is known for remarkably soft water that requires expert skill to use in sake production. Once mastered, it enables a highly controlled, precise fermentation, resulting in vibrant fruit aromas. This Junmai Ginjo is bottled immediately without charcoal filtering.
GRADE: Junmai Ginjo
RICE: Yamada Nishiki and Hatta Nishiki
TASTING NOTES: The fruity nose of lime and melon is pressed to the forefront with bold hints of fennel, white pepper and allspice. The flavors gravitate to ripe cantaloupe and black licorice while the minerality from the soft water is evident in the finish. The slightly sweet and clean mid-palate finishes dry.
