This is the first sake created by the current head brewer Mitobe Tomonobu, after he rejoined his father’s business. The idea was to combine the features of two junmai ginjo he had tasted before, both made with Omachi rice. One was from Aichi prefecture and was a full-bodied sake which balanced a powerful sweetness and a refined acidity. The other was from Yamagata prefecture and presented a very clean, elegant taste accompanied by the pronounced umami of the Omachi rice. This sake delivers both taste profiles and has been a long-time favourite since its conception.

TYPE: Junmai ginjo sake

COLOUR: Pale lemon green

OUR TASTING NOTES: Subtle aromas of pear, lychee, hints of banana and steamed rice. Elegant and pure, yet powerful and complex flavours typical of Omachi rice which showcase earthy and spicy characters with a lingering umami finish.

FOOD PAIRING: Bonito tataki; smoked salmon; butternut squash soup; charcuterie board.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Serve chilled (8-12ºC)
