Kanbara Wings of Fortune Saké Junmai Ginjo

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Pale, green-tinged color. Very expressive, clean, saline aromas of lime, squash, pumpkin and smoke. Offers a chewy texture without an impression of weight; the flavors of squash, melon and licorice are fresh and lightly sweet. Finishes with good breadth and subtle flavor. Made from pure mountain water. Wine Tasting Notes The aromas are clean and fresh with hints of anise and sweet rice. In the mouth, this sake has an incredibly elegant, silky texture and flavors of honeydew and anise, with a hint of pineapple. The finish seems to go on and on but never gets tiring. This is First-Class stuff.

Made by Kaetsu Shuzo, Niigata Prefecture. The best Yamada Nishiki rice and pure mountain water from the Oku-Aizu and Echigo mountains are used to make this lush, elegant, and wonderfully clean yet full-bodied Niigata sake.

This is a Genshu saké, and therefore richer than you might expect since it has not been diluted with water (as most sakés are). Vibrant, concentrated, and spritzy, it is full of round raw coconut and honeydew flavors.
