Brewed to a recipe recorded in 1712, this is fabulously sweet but not cloying, thanks to far higher levels (roughly three to seven times) the levels of acids and amino acids for contemporary ginjo styles. A superb aperitif or dessert wine, with a startlingly wide range of compatible foods. Great with ice cream and desserts, but also with blue cheese, salty pickled Japanese delicacies and foie gras.
The label for 1712 shows a sake brewery of the past. In places, you will find a cheeky observer - a robot with a head made from our logo.
