Detailled tasting notes: slightly amber, with very light yellow-green reflections. The nose is delicate, fruity, with white-fleshed fruit, citrus and lemon. Powdery, it expresses light notes of honey. One senses a nice acidity on a nose that is not very pronounced for a sake of the Ginjo category. On the palate, the attack is supple, soft and fruity. Spicy notes give the whole a dryer and straighter feel, to arrive at a clear, spring water, dry sake sensation. The finish is long, with a nice persistence of bitters. In conclusion: a Junmaï Ginjo rather backward on the fruity sensations, but very interesting for its dry, straight and clean side.
Suggested pairings: magnificent on oysters, but also on all seafood, razor clams, scallops, etc... The fact that it is dry makes it a good companion for grilled white meats, small Japanese yakitori brochettes.
