Tasting schistous, like some of the best white wines in the world, Joto Pink is rich with orchard fruit: anjou pear and ripe yellow apple, honeydew melon, white peach, spring blossoms, and savory backnotes of mushroom and earth. A strong line of acidity and a bit of astringency balances the fruit. 

The pink and red dots of this Junmai Ginjo represent the two kinds of yeast used to make this sake. The silver color symbolizes the merger into a delicious brew. Fruity, light, and floral, this Junmai Ginjo is brewed by Taka Yamauchi, maker of Watari Bune. Founded in 1854, the Huchu Homare Brewery is located in the town of Ishioka and is considered a national cultural landmark.
