BRIDE OF THE FOX - KANBARA
Grade: Junmai Ginjo
This savory sake is inspired by local legends of Niigata's annual fox-bride festival. Local lore tells of mysterious lights that appeared on nearby Mt. Kirin in the distant past, which are claimed to be the lanterns carried int he fox-bride procession. With a 50% poligshing rate, this sake could technically qualify as Junmai Daiginjo, but the savory notes and food pairing versatility identify more with the style expected from Junmai Ginjo.
