This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
Marumoto-san blends his new vintages with aged sake to create this junmai ginjo. The aged sake is unpasteurized and stored in stainless steel tanks in a cold room for up to five years. The result is a well-rounded sake that has some depth and complexity (from the aged sake), but still has the floral lightness of a junmai ginjo (from the new sake). This junmai ginjo uses daiginjo grade rice (rice milled down to 50%) with Yeast #9 (a fruity ginjo yeast) bringing out plum and cherry notes in the Yamada Nishiki rice grown on their farm. Great chilled with sashimi or steamed broccoli with miso dip.
