Tsukinokatsura Yanagi "Willow Tree"

Junmai Ginjo

(720ml)

Description: The nose is a basket filled with strawberries, bananas, citrus fruits and minerals. "Yanagi" is a deeply elegant sake made with outstanding water and perfect brewing rice. It is a very easy to understand Ginjo that borders on beautiful complexity. "Yanagi" is a very light and fruity, filled with incredible flavors like dry pear, cucumber, and hides a deep sweetness that is so subtle it is more of an expression than a flavor. Close your eyes and you will pull hints of vanilla in this graceful and classy sake.

One word to describe this sake brew: Fruity 

Food Pairings: Sushi & Sashimi, Grilled Fish, Shellfish, Grilled Meats, Fried or Salty Dishes, Salads, Grilled and Steamed Veggies, Tofu and Soba
