This Junmai Ginjo is made from Dewasansan rice, a descendant of the iconic Omachi heirloom strain. This rice is exclusively grown in Yamagata prefecture and helped to pave the way for Yamagata to receive the first geographical indication (GI), or appellation, in all of Japan.
Grassy, floral aromas with green apple and melon. The finish is soft and smooth.
An excellent pairing with teriyaki salmon, sauteed snow pea shoots or maple glazed ham.
