Dewazakura "Green Ridge"
Made from Dewasansan rice and polished to a daiginjo rate, this junmai ginjo is both bright and lush, with a super clean finish. Like most of Dewazakura's sakes, there is an abundance of lovely floral aromas. Fruit flavors are both sweet and tart - think green apple and persimmon - and the body is round and smooth.
About the producer
Dewazakura has been brewing sake in the city of Tendo since 1892. The brewery is best known for pioneering commercial-level production the Junmai Ginjo grade of sake in the 1980s. Prior to this, the vast majority of sake sold to the public was of lesser grades and Ginjo was only made in small quantities for sake competitions. Dewazakura, recognizing the quality of their Ginjo and that people would relish access to more elegant sake, released Oka in 1980 and countless breweries have since followed suit.
