The first new sake of the year. People line up for this fresh-pressed ginjo.
A limited winter bottling, fresh and punchy without pasteurization or dilution. Great all-round impact, bananas on the nose leading to a full-flavored interplay of sweet, tart, minerality, and a pleasant astringency in the finish.
Flavor & fragrance profile
Master brewer's comments
Because this is the first Ginjo sake, and because we fresh press it and ship as-is, we take extra care in making it. In the past few years, this sake has taken on a lighter profile, so this year we aimed to return it to its original, fuller bodied character.
Food pairing suggestions
