Sweetness: Medium Sweet
A distinctive sake variety in that many drinkers for this sake have likened it to other international wines, particularly the taste and how it goes down. As with most sake varieties classified as junmai ginjo, this sake was made with a combination of Yamada Nishiki rice and Omachi rice that were both polished up to 50 percent, giving access to the starchier interior for the distinct flavor. It is undiluted, giving it a more full-bodied flavour. This sake, however, is also only seasonally made, and as such, demand for it fluctuates.
Hint of banana and smooth texture on the palate. Aroma is sweet and fruity with a hint of lychee. Pronounced tartness balanced by a sweet hint at the start. A bit of a divergence from the traditional taste of sake. High acidity, easy to enjoy.
