Tasting Notes: With sweet rice aromas surrounded with floral fresh herb 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. Brewery Founded: 1917 Brewery Location: Akita Prefecture Press: 91 Points, Stephen Tanzers International Wine Cellar
Tokubetsu Junmai. 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.
Very pale yellow-straw color. Spicy, assertive aromas of green apple, flowers, mint and fresh herbs. Juicy, lively and light on its feet, with subtle fruitiness in a rather ethereal style. Complex and refined. From all locally grown rice
