Tsukinokatsura Yanagi Junmai Ginjo "Willow Tree"
The nose is a basket filled with strawberries, bananas, citrus fruits and minerals. Yanagi is a deeply elegant sake made with outstanding water and perfect brewing rice. It is a very easy to understand Ginjo that borders on beautiful complexity. Yanagi is a very light Ginjo filled with incredible flavors like dry pear, cucumber, and hides a deep sweetness that is so subtle it is more of an expression than a flavor. Close your eyes and you will pull hints of vanilla in this graceful and classy sake.
