Gassan Shuzo, Gassan No Yuki Junmai Ginjo NV
Made from Dewasansan rice polished to 50% at Gassan Shuzo in Yamagata Prefecture in north Japan. This is fragrantly honeyed with a savoury hint of umami, rich and smoothly full-bodied in texture and warming on the palate too, with an initial sweet fruitiness. The firm backbone of fresh acidity brings an appetising savoury dry quality to an elegant, food-friendly sake.
