This stunning bottle will be the starting point of conversation. Within you’ll find floral aromas, refreshing sweetness and tartness, and hints of grape and musk melon. Sip chilled as an aperitif or at room temperature alongside seafood or meat such as chicken cutlet.
Fruity and light, with a medium body and aromas of rye, violet, melons, red apple, and toasted sesame, this junmai ginjo is brewed by Taka Yamauchi in the town of Ishioka in Ibaraki Prefecture. A gold medal winner at the San Francisco International Wine Competition, this sake finishes crisp and clean, and should be served chilled and pairs well with light foods and acidic flavors like cheese, salads, sushi, vinegars, fish, and other seafood.
Light and well-balanced with a sweet and tart finish. Naturally red-colored yeast lends it a bright and beautiful rose color reminiscent of strawberries.
Delivery delay expected for this item.
Strawberry flower sake yeast is used to give this sake a uniquely refreshing sweetness and fruitiness that is indeed reminiscent of plump, ripe strawberries. A succulent bottle loaded with new and interesting flavors.

It was a lovely find to try “Izumibashi “Black Dragonfly Kimoto Junmai 2 year aged.” The flavor is amazingly refined and smooth. The description of the product provided is quite accurate. I had it paired with a soba meal and it worked very nice. I recommend this sake and will definitely buy it again.

I love Choya! I have a sweet tooth when it comes to drinks, and Choya always satisfies that craving. This is one of my favorite drinks and a great pick-me-up for those stressful days. Also, the plums in the drink add a wonderful touch to it. Highly recommend!
