Shiro is named for a soft white cloth made from tree bark that has the same light and buoyant character. With a lower alcohol content than most sakes (12%), the Masumi Shiro is smooth and gentle, with sweetness and acidity in finely etched balance. Mild aromas of banana and apple lead into a palate that is gently sweet and brightened by acidity and lingering savory umami. This junmai ginjo is ideal for lunchtime sake sipping, with enough body for evening enjoyment as well. It pairs well with fresh greens, salads with citrus accents, grilled shrimp, chicken, pasta primavera, and cheese courses.
