SAKE SWEETNESS

DESCRIPTION

This is a upgrade to the beloved Souhana Junmai Ginjo who have been loved for more than 100 years. Rice driven aromas, with hints of apple and white grape. Creamy mouthfeel, rich body while being clean and structured. This sake matches well with Tempura, Unagi, Beijing Duck and Sweet and Sour pork.

SOMMELIER'S NOTES

This sake was designed for the coronation of current Japanese Emperor Naruhito in 2019. Its striking bottle design and bold yet elegant taste is testament to the purpose of this brew. It is sometimes given out as gifts to the guests to the imperial palace.

Can't Go Wrong with this Sake

Appearance: Clear, very faint yellowish appearance (almost colourless) with high viscosity. Nose: Apple, pear, melon, pineapple, fresh milk, fresh cream, yoghurt. Palate: Pear, melon, fresh milk, fresh cream, yoghurt, nutmeg, white pepper, dark chocolate, mandarin orange. Body: Medium (-) Alcohol: Medium. Umami: Medium. Acidity: Medium (-) Personal opinion: Intensity of aroma is medium, with some complexity observed. Ginjo-ka and lactic notes are very evident on both the note and palate. On the palate, additional spice notes notes were observed as well, though they manifest more evidently as aftertaste. Sake has a medium body (smooth and light texture) and is slightly dry bordering on slight sweetness. Some astringency can be felt, which I have some issues distinguishing it from dryness. Some attack was felt, and it has a slightly long finish with a lingering peppery-dark chocolate developing into mandarin orange aftertaste. The depth and character of this sake makes it quite versatile to pair with food, especially those with medium intensity flavours. You can’t go wrong with this sake, unless it was kept badly.
