Pale silvery emerald straw color. Fruity aromas and flavors of pineapple chunks in a cedar cowl, fruitcake, pink peppercorn on key lime, and guava herb tea with a silky, crisp, fruity full body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long finish imparting accents of pineapple kefir, spiced melon, and pepper finish. A bright, tropical junmai bursting with flavor.

Junmai Ginjo Sake

Wine Glass Sake.jpg
Serve in a Stemless Wine Glass
A junmai ginjo sake is a very particular type of sake. Junmai refers to a sake that is a pure rice wine, one that does not have any distilled alcohol added. Ginjo refers to the fact that at least 40% of the rice polished away during the brewing process. This process for a ginjo sake is done at lower temperatures, which takes longer, but produces a sake that is light and fragrant with greater complexity.

A junmai ginjo sake is considered a "super premium" sake, which represents less than 10% of all sake. Along with traditional foods paired with sake, such as sushi or Asian cuisine, a junmai ginko sake also marries well with roast turkey or even leg of lamb.
