Winemaker's Notes

A rather fragrant junmai ginjo, bottled immediately without charcoal filtering. The fine-lined flavor is as bold as the fragrance, with a soft-edged fullness overall.

"Rich, with robust linen aromas and almond, pepper and clove flavors. Intense as it drives to a powerful, milk chocolate-tinged finish."

Learn About Junmai-Ginjo

Junmai-Ginjo

Junmai-Ginjo is one step higher than the Junmai classification.

Ginjo also includes more attention to the brewing process, with lower temperatures used for fermentation and the use of hand pressing. The resultant saké is in turn more light and delicate than Junmai, but also more complex, layered and fragrant.
