  • Initial notes of marzipan and honeydew melon in a silken texture, hints of wildflower honey resolve into a snappy finish of tart green apples.
  • The medium bodied and off-dry sweetness of rice pairs particularly well with aged cheeses, grilled whitefish, and a beautiful contrast for steamed bok choy.
  • A cross of Hokkaido’s native Ginpu and the heirloom Omachi, Kita Shizuku is a large grained rice type highly resistant to the cold, ideally suited to Hokkaido’s frosty climate. It is suited for highly polished Ginjo sake and produces light and soft sake with lift and brightness.
