Although this sake is not made using the same apple yeast as the daiginjos in the Maboroshi line, this junmai ginjo still shows green apple fruit. It also reflects the Hiroshima style, which is described as “kirei,” a Japanese word meaning both “clean” and “pretty.”

Tasting Note

Overall a light and delicate junmai ginjo; lower in aroma and fruit than many ginjos. Representative of the Hiroshima region which is known for soft water and crisp flavors.

Food Pairing

Serve chilled with tuna steak, yakitori, and tempura.
