On the nose, you’ll notice steamed rice, banana, apple, and citrus. On the palate, we noticed banana, honeydew melon, apple, citrus, and dairy. Iwate is a colder prefecture, much like New England.
Iwate Meijo brews this sake with Ginginga sake rice, which was specifically developed for Iwate’s colder climate. This allows the brewers to create a Junmai Ginjo truly reflects Iwate’s terroir, heritage, and cuisine.
It’s said that sake “doesn’t fight with food.” This junmai ginjo is proof. It pairs well with a wide variety of foods, including sushi, grilled seafood, pork, and poultry and is also great for sipping on its own. Served chilled (but it’s also very tasty at room temperature).
