Smooth and clean
Appearance: Clear, water-white, colourless appearance with high viscosity and some bubblings observed. Nose: Sake has clean nose, with medium intensity in aroma, in notes of Ginjo (apple, pear, melon), nuts/beans (caramelised nuts, chickpeas), and others (toffee). Palate: Sake is off-dry, with medium (+) umami and acidity, medium level of perceived alcohol, medium body with silky and velvety texture and pronounced flavour intensity in notes of Ginjo (apple, pear, melon), nuts/beans (caramelised nuts, chickpeas), and others (toffee). Sake has a long finished that started off with the sweet taste of caramelised nuts before fading into slight bitter notes which is reminiscent of chickpeas. Conclusion: Sake is balanced, flavourful and refreshing with the acidity and bubbling mouth-feel.
Excellent find and priced within reach to its taste and class!
