Learn About 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.
