TASTING NOTES:
This Junmai Daiginjo has a beautiful nose full of banana, melon and star anise. The all natural brewing
process gives this sake a bright fresh palate of plum, lime and minerality with a clean dry finish. A very food
friendly sake, and is thought to be best after the meal with a light, smooth, rich cow’s milk cheese.

ABOUT TSURUNOE:
Tsurunoe is a very traditional, small brewery founded in 1794. It was originally intended for making miso and
soy sauce. The water is classically soft, and they use only locally grown rice. The reflection of their technique
is to brew a sake that begins with a big mouthfeel, that lasts long and slowly, beautifully, fading away in the
mouth. Aizu Chushou sake are aged, blending older sake with newer sake; the aging process allowing the sake
to become more sweet and flavorful.
