Junmai Ginjo Sake, Jokigen [Rice Label]
The Jokigen is a model Junmai Ginjo packing in a remarkable amount of flavor and aroma in a medium full body. Classic Yamagata style with its subtle layers of fruit and light sweetness. Stewed black cherries, orange zest and a savory finish make a great sake to enjoy on its own or bumping up against dishes like grilled duck breast or miso marinated black cod.
Made from specially grown Oyama Nishiki developed by a group of Toyama rice farmers looking to develop the ultimate sake rice. They chose Sakata Shuzo as a brewery that could bring out the full potential of the rice. Milled to 55% remaining to bring out subtle aromatics and flavors.
