Hakkaisan Junmai Ginjo calls to mind the crisp air and gentle snow of a fine winter’s day. You’ll enjoy the hints of rice and the mellow texture of this delicious brew. Look for exceptional clarity of flavor and a quiet elegance on the palate. Made from three sake-rice varietals: Yamadanishiki, Miyamanishiki, and Gohyakumangoku, and crystal clear spring water from Raiden God Temple located on the foot of Mt. Hakkai. this crisp, clean sake is a landmark example of the Niigata sake brewing style. A lightly dry finish cleans your palate and makes our Junmai Ginjo a very food friendly sake, indeed.
Food Pairing: versatile, from white meats to seafood.
