Madonoume Sake Brewing

A junmai-shu sake from Madonoume Sake Brewing. Junmai-shu: pure rice wine; no adding of distilled alcohol.

There is no English on the website. This Sake is not dry at all, very fruity. Can be drunk warm or cold. I didn't like this sake too much.

1208 Yen in Japan (10 euro). 20 euro's in The Netherlands. Ouch!

In the meantime cook pasta. Drain and pour gorgonzola sauce into the pan with the pasta. Add finely chopped sage. Season with salt and serve immediately.
