This Tokubetsu or “Special” Junmai was one of the first craft sakes to become popular in the USA. With an earthy yet sweetly ripe nose, this classic Hokkaido sake balances dryness and lively acidity. A clean, rich texture wrapped in a mouthful of dried fruit flavors and subtle earthiness makes it a great partner for rich Japanese dishes like ramen, or even Western dishes like cacio e pepe. This is a very user-friendly sake that is great for beginners and aficionados alike. Enjoy chilled, at room temperature, or warm. Wine fans who enjoy the bold texture of a Loire Chenin Blanc or the heft of a Côte de Nuits Rouge will love this sake.
