It's rare to see a ginjo (as opposed to a junmai ginjo) in the U.S. What does this mean? A ginjo has some brewers alcohol added to it, which results in a sake that is super clean, with no notes of riciness. Adding some brewers alcohol also cuts some of the sweetness that is usually present in junmai ginjos.
Therefore, this ginjo tastes like pure, clean water with hints of fennel, mint and pear on the nose. Bring this bottle chilled to a daytime picnic or to your backyard and enjoy alongside potato salad, plain potato chips or fries. If you are having a Japanese themed night, have this bottle alongside California rolls or negi-hama rolls.
