This summer sake has evolved into a more suitable drink for the season, with a vibrant fruity aroma from the brewery-specific yeast and a refreshing acidity from the white koji. By using white koji in part of the koji-making process, it expresses a lively sensation with a touch of citric acid. It is a sake that goes down smoothly even in hot weather.

Made from 100% Akita Komachi rice, polished to a 55% ratio, with an alcohol content of 15%, and brewed using brewery-specific yeast.

    Required in units of 6 bottles (multiples of 6) per brewery

Professional Review

"The aroma is floral, with hints of baked sweet potato honey. There are also savoury notes of grain and iodine. At first, a fruity acidity like apricots and green plums spreads on the palate. On the other hand, it also has a tangy, summery, spicy feel, making it ideal as a mid-meal drink. Recommended served cold."

Pairing Suggestion: Char-grilled river fish such as sweetfish, rainbow trout and landlocked salmon, blue cheese.

"Based on pear and yellow apple aromas, the nose has the mellow sweetness of whipped cream and strawberry milk, harmonised with the fresh aromas of acacia and fresh greenery, freshly pounded rice cakes and oily sap. The taste is an exemplary junmai ginjo with a good balance between rich umami and gorgeous aroma. It has a good acidity reminiscent of sports drinks. Recommended temperature range: around 15°C, served in an INAO glass."

Pairing Suggestion: Sweet-flavoured appetisers such as honey-boiled green plums, Maruju lemon stew, sweet-cooked river fish, etc. Also as an aperitif.
