Junmai Ginjo

国盛  半田郷  純米吟醸

Handago Junmai Ginjo was recently honored with the prestigious ‘Judges Award’ in the Junmai division at France’s esteemed ‘Kura Master’ sake competition.

100% regional Sake specific rice Wakamizu is used.
The rice is polished slowly to 55% remaining ratio and fermented at a low temperature, taking time to complete its fermentation. This creates a very delicate, beautiful, fruity style . The aroma called ‘Ginjo-ka’ shows pear, apple and banana.
It has soft texture, medium body, fresh fruits, sweetness from rice, and delicate acidity. Long finish.
