Awakened for autumn, beautifully fresh and gracefully aged

A yamahai sake pressed in March, kept fresh in sub-zero storage til summer's end, then awakened in autumn. Fresh young fruit aromas soar above the acidity, sweetness, and savory finish of a well-matured junmai ginjo.

Master brewer's comments

This year we switched to 100% Miyama Nishiki rice, which yielded a lighter, drier character. Still has a freshening aroma followed by well-integrated sweet and savory maturity.
