Kanbara Bride of the Fox Junmai Ginjo NV

Winemaker's Notes:

"Junmai Ginjo. Made by Kaetsu Shuzo, Niigata Prefecture. A fragrant, crisp, and pure sake. The name of this wonderful product was inspired by local legends about mysterious lights that appeared on nearby Mt. Kirin in the distant past. Locals claim the lights are paper lanterns carried in the fox-bride procession. This mysterious event is celebrated nationwide every year in the fox-bride festival. Learn more about this festival by visiting the Kaetsu Brewery page. Kaetsu uses rice grown on the high plains and pure mountain water to brew superior sake, both rich in aroma and clean in taste."

"Very pale color, deeper than the Wandering Poet but less brilliant. High-pitched, nuanced nose combines melon, lime, mint, nuts and dusty fresh herbs. Juicy and intense, with assertive flavors of citrus fruit, melon, herbs, spices and nuts. Not a heavy style but boasts impressive palate presence and plenty of character. The long finish hints at melon and nuts." Enjoy intense aromas of grilled nuts, pistachio, and a hint of white chocolate Flavors of nuts and ripe honeydew explode at the front and finishes crisp with a hint of lingering sweetness. - Brewery

Recommended Sakes: Complex, with herbal aromas of chicory, clove and chive, a creamy texture and savory flavors of dried fig and pepper. Builds to a spicy finish.
