Gold prize winner at the US Sake Appraisal (Joy of Sake) in 2014 and 2015.

Glamorous fruity nose with velvety mouth-feel. Perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. This is a masterpiece of uma-kuchi (umami-rich) junmai ginjo sake made by Takeda Shuzoten, a boutique sake house in the south-western part of Niigata Prefecture. Pairs well with grilled fatty fish, salmon meuniere, steak.

"Katafunune" is a sake with a rich taste. Compared to the light dry type, this sake is round and sweet with a spicy taste. A distinctive feature is the label on which the brand and the fishing boat from which it came (Katafune) are drawn.
