Shimizo-No-Mai Pure Snow Sake (300ML)
Junmai from Akita, Japan
Shimizo-No-Mai Pure Snow is slightly cloudy in appearance. Melon aromas with notes of cucumber and a hint of pear. It has a powerful flavor with distinctive texture accompanied by notes of ginger, Asian pear, and cantaloupe. It's smooth and finishes soft-sweet to dry.
Small family sake breweries, dating back to 1656, came together in 1944 to reestablish themselves as Akita Shurui Seizoh Company. The credo of the brewery is a simple set of beliefs: we value quality first, we are one with the land on which we stand, and our sake is a reflection of the toji spirit.

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%.
