Yuki No Bosha Junmai Ginjo
Yuki No Bosha is the most well-known brand from Saiya Brewery. It is known for its pronounced aroma, silky and balanced body, clean acidity, and rich umami. Yuki No Bosha which literally means "Cabin in the Snow," is a celebration of the northern, Akita region of Japan. Rustic, rugged and rural Akita prefecture is cherished by the Japanese for its lively festivals, tranquil winter and delicious sake.
Yuki No Bosha Junmai Ginjo is one of the best products from this brewery. Bottled without an addition of water, and without filtration with charcoal/micro-paper, Yuki No Bosha sake has a rich and bold flavor, laden with pleasant acidity. It is a superb sake that has ripe fruit tones including strawberries and mangos that dance in a silky and clean flow. The softness of this Junmai Ginjo and the vivid acidity are muted by a fruitiness without being sweet. This is the perfect sake for those looking for a fruity experience but don't want too sweet!
