Our summer fresh junmai sake, opens with a mildly fruity aroma and taste, then closes with a clean, dry finish.
｛ Master brewer's comments ｝
This year's Namazake shows number seven yeast's gentle fruit aromas very beautifully; it seems more like a ginjo-class sake in character, and is clean and fresh at the finish. This unpasteurized brew will become sweeter with time, so enjoy it as it develops over the summer.
｛ Food pairing suggestions ｝
Fresh salads, grilled meats, foods with Japanese spices like ginger, wasabi, and yuzu pepper.
