Junmai Ginjo


Description: Cool bottle, but does it drink great! You bet! This sake, made with the very tasty brewing rice called Gohyakumangoku, has a distinctive nose filled with apple, cherry and melon essences. Behold a sake with some strength in flavor and character. Shoin has a strong personality for a Ginjo and drinks with a robust and dry attitude that speaks to those who like a pop in their sakes and wines. Bold and full-flavored, look for pushes of crisp apple, pear, and cooked cherries on a fluid that is semi-thick. Wine drinkers who enjoy a long finish Shoin is for you. Sake drinkers looking for a little more rice attitude this brew is for you.
