Tentaka Organic Junmai Ginjo is made from locally grown Gohyakumangoku rice using very strict organic standards. As usual, the Tentaka Shuzo brewery tries to capture in the best way the aromas of this noble rice, and succeeds perfectly!
The nose expresses wonderfully the typical aromas of a fruity ginjo, notes of banana and ripe pineapple are frank. Relatively sweet on the palate, pleasant and fresh, a great liveliness accompanies the characteristic umami of Gohyakumangoku rice. A remarkably balanced sake, lively, focused on the fruit, clean and very refreshing.

Tentaka brewery is nestled in the east end of Nasu Nogahara, in a town called Yuzukami. Surrounded by rice fields and mountains, the air and water are clean and fresh. The area is surrounded by three flowing rivers and has managed to avoid tourism.
"If it isn't dry, it isn't sake." These words of founder Motoichi Ozaki set the course for the style of sake Tentaka would achieve, and it remains so even today. They try to brew sake that is refreshing to drink, sake that can be enjoyed each day.
