This is a Yamahai Junmai Ginjo pressed in March, kept fresh in cool storage until summer's end, then awakened in early autumn. Hiyaoroshi acquires a patina of flavour depth while retaining its youthful freshness. Gracefully fragrant, with limpidly balanced sweetness and acidity.
Goes well with autumn dishes like oven-roasted autumnal vegetables, marinated mushroom salads and roast pork with sweet onion and hot mustard.
Masumi brewery history dates back to 1662. The sake is made with a strain of the Kyokai No. 7 yeast discovered at Masumi’s brewery 70 years ago.
*Please note that the brown label is the new design for 2020. The photo of the old, white label is provided for your reference only.
