Hakutsuru Shuzo Junmai Ginjo Sake, 300 ml
A subtle yet fantastically flavoured junmai ginjo, made gentle to drink.
There's few sake out there that can be enjoyed as light and refined as this junmai ginjo by Hakutsuru Shuzo. Pouring practically clear thanks to natural spring water of the local Nada region of Hyogo prefecture, it's slight yellow/green tint complements its floral and grassy nose, with faint notes of melon and anise luring you into its surprisingly fruity and alcoholic palate. With a wonderfully mellow and smooth mouthfeel despite its strong burn, this junmai ginjo successfully balances its crisp tastes with a silky flow that arrives thanks to the quality of rice used in its brewing. A very dry finish gives this sake a refreshing end that completes its gentle and enjoyable drinking experience, making it ideal for those looking for a light and nuanced sake to appreciate. Best enjoyed chilled.
