This sake is Junmai Ginjo, made with flower yeast of strawberry blossoms. It is well-balanced in sweetness and acidity that is almost reminiscent of fresh strawberries. It tastes sweet, but it is not stagnant at all since it has a high level of acidity that helps harmonize with sweetness. It goes well with something with a rounded flavor like scrambled eggs, cream cheese, and so on. - Winemaker's Notes

Varietal: Omachi Rice
From Okayama. Generally less fragrant, more defined flavor elements, more earthiness. The only pure strain of rice left in Japan (to my knowledge, so don’ argue for this point should you choose to quote me). Representative Sake Brands: Bizen Sake no Hitosuji (Okayama). Most visible users of Omachi. Use it across a whole range of sake types . Lots of it good warmed. Some fermented in Bizen-yaki tanks. Also look for Yorokobi no Izumi form Okayama.

Country: Japan
Japan is best known for producing sake rice wine which it has produced for centuries. However, recently Japan has received recognition for it's contribution in the areas of beer and whisky as well. But Sake remains the best known of Japanese wines. Although it is commonly called rice wine, its production process is more similar to beer than wine, as starch (not fructose) feeds the fermentation process. Undiluted sake reaches alcohol levels higher than beer or wine, as high as 20% alcohol by volume.

Region: Saga Prefecture
Saga is one of eight prefectures on the island of Kyushu. This part of Japan is located around 500 miles west of Tokyo. There are around 30 active sake breweries in the prefecture, which is also known for nori seaweed, squid, green tea and a range of fruits and vegetables. Locals also produce sought after porcelain, inspired by historic interactions with Korea and China.
