Kanbara Bride of the Fox Junmai Ginjo Sake
When thinking about a beverage for fall flavors, this saké is at the top of the list! Bride of the Fox Junmai Ginjo is from the Kanbara Brewery in the famous saké region of the Niigata Prefecture. The reason for such great saké produced from Niigata is snow! Niigata receives over 30 feet of snowfall a year; the runoff from this snow creates great, pristine rice paddies in which to grow the saké rice. Aromas of roasted nuts and steamed rice, followed by notes of crisp apple, stonefruit, and a hint of cocoa makes for a fall favorite! Use a red wine glass to serve this saké and experience a larger depth in flavor and richness. Try Bride of the Fox with roasted fall vegetables and your favorite cooler weather stews.
