Description: This Junmai Ginjo caresses the nose with sweet, fruity hints like candied pineapple and bubblegum. The taste evokes a ripe peach or lychee fruit with a hint of cedar and a long, mild crisp-apple finish, leaving the palette semi-dry. Could pair with grilled chicken, fish or glazed pork.
