Tasting Notes

This sake is made with yeast that is obtained directly from the brewer that discovered it, rather than through the usual distribution channels. Yeast #9 makes the sake a bit more lively and intense. Song of the Sea is an ode to the brewery’s seaside location in Kanagawa. Fun fact: The Great Wave of Kanagawa, the most recognized work of Japanese woodblock art in the world, was created in this prefecture. This junmai ginjo displays supreme balance between aromas and flavors. A medley of apple, banana, and melon lead the aromas and carry through on the palate. Intense throughout with a crisp, clean finish. Food pairing ideas are grilled lamb chops with curried pears and pistachio couscous, tamarind glazed chicken, or parsnip fries with smoked paprika.

    Lovely stuff. Aromas are classic Junmai Ginjo: fresh honeydew, lemon, lime, pear and green apple with a touch of lemongrass. Intensity is neither robust nor restrained; just right. Light but not thin-bodied on the palate. Acidity is clearly present but does not distract from the subtle flavors of fresh pear and lemon. Finishes clean and lingers just long enough and with a faint impression of sweetness. Extremely well made example of a delicate Junmai Ginjo.
