Harukoi Junmai Ginjo
This nigori sake is a vibrant pink that is reminiscent of the Japanese spring cherry blossoms, Sakura.
The specialized red yeast we use to brew this sake is very delicate and difficult to handle; therefore, the brewer’s experience and skill is showcased in the beautiful pink color of this sake.
This sake features a balance of sweet and sour to mirror the lively flavor of fresh strawberries.
– Handling Precautions –
Non-pasteurized nigori sake, such as Harukoi, may continue to ferment in the bottle. This secondary fermentation can release carbon dioxide.
Please be careful when opening the bottle.
There is a gas vent on the top of the cap, so please keep the bottle upright. The gas vent may become blocked by the nigori sake or bubbles. This can cause pressure to buildup in the bottle. To prevent carbon dioxide from suddenly releasing, poke a hole in the top of the cap. The hole allows carbon dioxide to escape from the vent.
Moreover, the sake is unpasteurized so, please keep it refrigerated.
For more information on handling precautions please view the “Harukoi Junmai Ginjo Handling Precautions” video.
Namazake: An unpasteurized sake. It is fresher than its pasteurized and filtered counterpart. Please keep refrigerated and consume within 3 months of the bottling date on the label.
