Junmai Ginjo Nigori “Winter Warrior”
The Tomita Brewery is one of Japan’s oldest breweries; it was founded in the 1540s and is now managed by the 15th generation president. Tomita is also one of the smallest sake producers, making just over 6,000 cases a year.
This small-production nigori or “unfiltered sake” bursts with notes of pineapple, papaya and coconut. It is bright and lively with a fresh and robust mouthfeel.
Before serving, gently shake the bottle to properly mix the sediments with the sake. Serve well-chilled. Enjoy with a range of food like a cheeseburger with fries, spicy Asian cuisine and even creamy chocolate desserts.
Serve chilled with spicy Asian foods, especially curries, fatty grilled steak or hamburgers, or chocolate desserts.
