Wildly aromatic, juicy melon, peaches with a slight hint of grass and cotton candy. Lusciously velvety texture, flavours envelope the palate entirely, complex, elegant and fruity, with just enough sweetness to assert a long finish.
Very distinctive sake. Superb texture. a great example of a rich and sweeter style of Junmai Daiginjo

With medium sweetness, it was a hit with the lady guests when I bought this to a Churrasco dinner last Friday.

Highly recommended if you are looking for something medium and appealing to ladies. Also good for first time drinkers of

Clear, faint-yellowish hue appearance with slightly high viscosity. Nose: Pear, melon, banana, cotton candy, lactic, and maybe some cottage cheese. Palate: Pineapple, pear, apple, banana, lactic, cotton candy Body: Medium. Alcohol: Medium (+). Umami: Medium. Acidity: Medium (+). Personal opinion: Sake has a clear, faint-yellowish hue appearance with slightly high viscosity. Ginjo-ka are definitely present, no doubt, with aroma of medium (+) intensity and complexity. Sake has a well-bodied, silky and creamy texture, and feels slightly dry. It has a medium attack, with a slightly long finish. This is exactly the kind of sake I would take to go with a sushi omakase set; being a kun-shu that weighs towards to fuller flavour and texture, it’s the kind of versatile sake that could be paired with a wide range of seafood from the more delicate flavour ones to the heavier tasting seafood such as Meguro and Uni and yet, does not overpower their original flavours. Sanzen is one of those brands which you can’t go wrong with.
