Ty-Ku Junmai Ginjo Black 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes TY KU Super Premium Sake is one of the purest beverages on the planet made from only four all natural ingredients: rice, water, yeast & koji. TY KU Sake utilizes 60% polished specialty sake rice (with 40% of the impurities removed from every individual grain) and pristine, iron-free, naturally filtered water, proprietary yeast and hand-made koji. Specially brewed in a craft style with no additives or preservatives. Refined, smooth flavor profile with peach on the nose and a subtle hint of spice underneath. Soft and creamy with deep viscosity that coats the palette resulting in a long finish which ends delightfully crisp. Depth and body pairs well with lighter Western fare (grilled white meats & cooked fish) yet are delicate enough to complement Asian cuisine.

Here is a delicious Sake produced by Ty Ku in Nara, Japan - the birthplace of sake. Following the stringent standards used for Japanese Sake, this Super Premium Junmai Ginjo is produced from specialty Yamada Nishiki & Akebono rice that is milled to 55% of its original size, leaving the flavorful and very pure core of the rice grains to ferment slowly. This is a very popular and fine sake with a light green apple nose and gentle fruity flavor and many subtleties. The Junmai Ginjo classification represents the top 6% of all sake in the world and Ty Ku Black received a Gold Medal in the San Francisco International Wine Competition along with many other accolades. Drink it Chilled.

Following the same stringent standards used for Japanese Sake, this Super Premium Junmai Ginjo is produced from rice that is milled to 60% of its original size, leaving the flavorful and very pure core of the rice grains to ferment slowly. This is a very popular and fine sake with a light green apple nose and gentle fruity flavor. Drink it chilled and many subtleties will emerge as you drink.
