Tasting notes - Junmai Ginjo
Moderate rice aroma, slightly fruity ginjo style characteristics with notes of banana and pineapple. The Gohyakumangoku rice gives it a slight umami taste.
Best with more delicate dishes such as grilled scallops or vegetables, sashimi, any food that is light with herbs. Salads using lettuce, cabbage (not mayo) or English spinach. For a non Japanese pairing suggestion try Carnitas with Tomatillo Salsa, Onions and coriander.
