Spring Snow

Brewed in the depths of winter and bottled fresh, this sake retains a light cloudiness reminiscent of a snow shower in the spring. Aroma suggesting melons and pears leads into sweet and tangy flavors nicely pillowed by its cloudiness.

Flavor & fragrance profile

Master brewer's comments

This year's rice kept its integrity during fermentation, so Usunigori is lighter, drier, and has more fruity and flowery aromas.
