Katafune Junmai Genshu

$69

Here is a trophy-winning sake...two times over. This Junmai Genshu is the distinguished winner of the IWC for Best Junmai in 2015 & 2017. It earned that distinction by offering a wonderful array of gentle sweetness, higher acidity, and glimmers of citrus. The result is a rich and mellow Japanese sake that fully draws out the flavor of the rice inherent in Japanese sake.
