Momokawa Organic Ginjo Junmai Sake NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Beverage Testing Institute Review Rated 91 BEST BUY Very faint straw color with a silvery cast. Explosive aromas of five spice, anise cookie, dried papaya, and praline follow through on a silky, vibrant entry to a fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body with apple pie and and honey notes. Finishes with a long, fruity spicy fade. A vibrant, festive sipper. (tasted on Dec-16-2008) Wine Tasting Notes The pursuit of the finest sake leads us along many paths but the one that just made the most sense was crafting the finest certified organic sake. Fully organic, certifiably so. Enjoy! Lush fruit and spice aromas layer their way to big fruit flavors packed in a complex body and long, clean finish. Wild Salmon and morels. Crisp green salad of romaine, heirloom tomatoes and chevre. Fruit salads and savory grilled chicken.

SakéOne:
Pure water: it's one of the most crucial components of saké; premium saké cannot be brewed without quality water. After our founders realized that the country's best water supply for saké was the Pacific Northwest, they located their new saké brewery in Forest Grove, Oregon, on the east slope of the Coast Range, in 1997.

Pure water: it's one of the most crucial components of saké; premium saké cannot be brewed without quality water. After our founders realized that the country's best water supply for saké was the Pacific Northwest, they located their new saké brewery in Forest Grove, Oregon, on the east slope of the Coast Range, in 1997. SakéOne, the country's foremost sakéry, was built at the edge of a lush rainforest aquifer. Founded by an American who evolved into a saké visionary after experiencing the finest sakés Japan had to offer, SakéOne was first incorporated in Oregon in 1992 under the name Japan America Beverage Co. (JABC). It was established through a joint partnership with Momokawa Brewing Inc. Japan of Momoishi, Aomori Prefecture, Japan, a saké producer since 1856 that brought deep product knowledge and ages of experience. The new company started as an importer, then built its facility in Forest Grove just a few years later. In October of 1998, JABC changed its name to SakéOne and became the world's only American-owned-and-operated sakéry. With strong ties to tradition and its Japanese roots, SakéOne is the leading producer of "Ginjo" (premium) grade saké in the U.S. With a set of four premium sakés produced and bottled under its own Momokawa label, the company set out to develop new products that would help fill the growing demand for premium saké. Defining a niche for fruit-flavor-infused saké, SakéOne launched the Moonstone brand, becoming the first company to bottle a new category of flavor-added saké. The rest, as they say, is history. Since SakéOne's inception, the popularity of premium saké has boomed in the U.S. SakéOne is the fastest-growing sakéry in the U.S. Led by an impressive array of wine industry veterans, the company continues to grow exponentially. SakéOne now distributes its saké in all fifty states, Canada, the Caribbean, and South America. Today the company is managed by some of the nation's leading wine business experts. This dynamic leadership group directs a creative team of marketing, sales, and brewing experts in an effort to develop traditional saké that appeals to the American palate through innovation and a willingness to take chances and explore the boundaries of consumer desire.
