Yoshi No Gawa Genson Karakuchi 'Kome Dry' Honjozo Sake - 1.8 Litre Bottle
Yoshi no Gawa Gensen is a prime example of the Niigata karakuchi style. It’s medium-light, food-friendly, and finishes with modest bitterness. Brewing pioneers twenty generations strong since 1548, Yoshi No Gawa is the oldest brewery in Niigata and the fifth oldest brewery in Japan.
A classic extra-dry saké, Gensen Karakuchi is well balanced, clean, and crisp, with a mild sweetness. Layers of subtle fruit flavors and hints of earth and water portray its Niigata home. Soft tones of fig, raisin liqueur, and woodsy cypress, lead to a palate of green apple, vanilla, and tapioca with a clean finish. Pair with Pork Ramen, Seaweed Salad, or Veggie Stir-Fry, and enjoy! Can be served either chilled or warm.
