Joyo “Junmai 65”

Kyoto prefecture

Crisp with some oomf

Made from Gohyakumangoku rice which produces leaner flavor and goes great with food. Freshly opened, the aroma is fresh and vivid. On the palate there is unripe pineapple juiciness with a dash of yuzu. If you can resist and keep the bottle after opening, it will beautifully mature into a mellow, plump softness. Enjoy as it sits in your glass, and also as it matures in the bottle after opening.

Their motto is “bikan yuso,” which translates to a sense of beauty and playful imagination-and strives to provide beautiful sake to elevate people’s senses. Their sake is to be enjoyed not only with Japanese food but also with French, Italian and a wide range of foods.
