White gold color. Aromas of hibiscus and passionfruit with a silky, bright, fruity light body and an even, interesting, medium-length meyer lemon, fresh cream, and toasted ciabatta finish. A very refreshing summertime Junmai Ginjo that will be equally great in the yard or at the table.

Junmai Ginjo Sake

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.
