With sweet rice aromas surrounded with floral freshherb spiciness, this slightly dry, medium-bodied sake has mouthwatering apple flavors with an agreeable earthiness on the mid-palate. Clean and focused on the finish that accentuates its rice-like qualities.
Made by Asamai Shuzo, Akita Prefecture. Raisins and earthiness in faint nose. Overall slightly dry flavor but with nice fruity essences in the recesses, supplanted by nice rice-like tones and a gentle sweetness beneath.
|Seimaibuai: 55% (45% of rice grain polished away)
