Ama No To Heaven's Door Tokubetsu Junmai NV

Winemaker's Notes:

A tokubetsu junmai sake from Akita Prefecture, bearing the American name, 'Heaven's Door.' This sake has underlying earthiness to the nose and body with a nice fruit and rice finish. It is a dry, slightly sweet sake with hints of apple, flowers, and fresh herbs. The method of this Akita based brewery is 'go local,' as its sake resources and staff are from the prefecture itself. Polish: 55% <br/>SMV: +4 <br/>Rice: Ginnosei and Miyama Nishiki

"Very pale yellow-straw color. Spicy, assertive aromas of green apple, flowers, mint and fresh herbs. Juicy, lively and light on its feet, with subtle fruitiness in a rather ethereal style. Complex and refined. From all locally grown rice." With sweet rice aromas surrounded with floral fresh herb spiciness, this slightly dry, medium-bodied sake has mouthwatering apple flavors with an agreeable earthiness on the mid-palate. Clean and focused on the finish that accentuates its rice-like qualities. - Brewery
