Tonoike Sanran Ginjo
The nose on this classic Tochigi-Style sake is a great collection of peach, tangerine, melon, sweet rice, and green apple aromas. Lively, bright, light, clean and crisp this brew drinks smooth and with a gentle acidity that is refreshing and flavorful. It’s very graceful and elegant with a tantalizing fruity over-all complexion and a quick dry finish. Look for tangerine, powder sugar, peach, pear, crisp apple, sugar cane, and grapefruit flavors that are clean and dry in a white wine glass. This is one of those “sessionable” sakes that drinks way too easy from a killer brewery. WORD: Refreshing WINE: Crisp Reds/ Bright Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, grilled fish and chicken, shellfish, oysters, and dishes with citrus.
