The Tenryō Hinoya Aki Agari (天領 純米吟醸 秋あがり) is a seasonal Junmai Ginjō that reaches its maturity in autumn. It is made of local Hinahomare rice that is polished down to 60%, using the soft water of the Northern Alps. The brewery describes it as mature, calm and spicy with a taste that can be enjoyed both heated and cold and recommends pairing it with saury, mushrooms, oden, grilled eel, fried oysters, and sashimi.

About the brewery:

Tenryō Brewery is located in Gero City in Gifu Prefecture. It was founded in 1680 and is run as a family business to this day. The founder hailed from Omi-Hino (近江日野, modern-day Hino City in Shiga Prefecture) and was a vassal of Gamo Ujisato. He set up a store in Hida for business and, fascinated by the beauty of the locality, settled there, starting to produce sake and trading other goods. In the Meiji period, sake brewing became the family's main business, and in 1958 the brewery was incorporated as "Tenryo Shuzo Co., Ltd.". The brewery is using special rice called Hidahomare and, to a smaller extent, Yamada Nishiki. Hidahomare is cultivated by local farmers in paddy fields at the foot of the Northern Alps. "Hinoya" is a brand that was established in commemoration of the 340th anniversary of the brewery's founding.

This is a dry and only slightly sweet junmai ginjo. A nose of koji and fungi. Very mild at first impression, slightly sour finish. Elegant taste that can be paired with most Japanese and Western food.
