Saiya Brewery Yuki No Bosha Sake (300ML)
Junmai-Ginjo from Akita, Japan
This junmai ginjo is a favorite with new and seasoned sake drinkers alike. It is soft and light on the palate, with a delightful fruitiness characterized by peaches, strawberries and papaya. It finishes with a white pepper spice.
Best served chilled, it complements light foods like salad, sushi and sashimi. It also cools down spicey Asian foods or can also be paired with very salty or rich foods, as well as certain cheeses and desserts.
Saiya Brewery Winery
Founded in 1902 by Yataro Saito and now managed by the fifth-generation, Kotaro Saito, the Saiya Shuzouten is a hidden gem in the sake world. Since their inception, they have put our focus on using their own in-house yeast and milling rice properly. Fermentation takes place in a kura where the kurabito (brewers) all work in unison, and the sounds of traditional sake brewing songs can still be heard. View all Saiya Brewery Wines

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
