Fukucho Moon on the Water Junmai Ginjo is brewed by one of Japan’s only female brewery owners and tojis. Brewed in Hiroshima, the birthplace of Ginjo sake, which is known for remarkably soft water that requires expert skill to use in sake production. Once mastered, it enables a highly controlled, precise fermentation, resulting in vibrant fruit aromas. This Junmai Ginjo is bottled immediately without charcoal filtering.
Fukucho Moon on the Water Junmai Ginjo has a fruity nose of lime and melon with bold hints of fennel, white pepper and allspice. The flavors gravitate to ripe cantaloupe and anise while the minerality from the soft water is evident in the finish.
It pairs well with sweet, succulent shellfish like lobster and scallops, but surprising pairings like bittersweet chocolate work, too.
