Rice - Yamada Nishiki � 山田锦 Color - Light Green Aroma - �, melon, steam � Taste - Light Umami - Medium First impression - Lively Body - Light Sweetness - Medium Sweet Tail/length - Short Overall - It is my first time trying sake from Sanzen. Very Good sake. Made from 100% Yamada Nishiki rice (commonly used to brew Ginjo & Daiginjo grade �), the distinctive aroma of � and melon says it all. With medium sweetness, it was a hit with the lady guests when I bought this � to a �� Churrasco dinner last Friday. With so much roasted � on the table, this light body and medium umami �just kept us going all night. Served at Suzu Hie temperature, it really enhances the fruity aroma finish of the �. Highly recommended if you are looking for something medium � and appealing to ladies. Also good for first time drinkers of �

Sanzen is one of those brands which you can’t go wrong with

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.
