Winemaker Notes

A mature well-rounded flavor with a settled fragrance. Dry but with an underlying richness. Drier and lighter when chilled, and a bit fuller as it warms.

Eighty percent of Tentaka's saké is sold in Tochigi Prefecture where they are located. It is brewed with water drawn from an underground stream that originates in the Yamizo and Nasu mountain ranges.
