White gold color. Aromas of dried citrus, sliced cucumber, and cherry yogurt with a silky, crisp, dryish light body and a smooth, quick peach, pineapple, minerals, and hint of ginger tea finish. A clean and easy-drinking sake.

Junmai Sake

Serve in a Stemless Wine Glass
Junmai literally translates into “pure rice”. This is the older, more traditional method of brewing sake. Junmai saké can only contain four ingredients: rice, water, yeast and koji with no added alcohol. Junmai sakés will be richer and fuller bodied than the other major type, Honjozo saké. Until recently, at least a 30% rice polish (70% remaining) was required for this definition, but that has now been eliminated.

These are generally dry to off-dry and pair well with sushi, fusion cuisine or even seafood risotto.
