Shirataki Jozen "Pure Flavor"
Description: This Ginjo has a nose of soft metal or minerals mixed with persimmons and pomegranates. It has a very nice white chocolate clean beginning with vanilla middle and dried apple finish, all the while twisting in a flavor of snow melt and pears. This sake falls into the very clean and pristine category of Niigata sakes, and does not disappoint. The smoothness and thin viscosity melt in the warmth of your mouth and the fresh balance of acidity and crispness makes this Ginjo disappear with a lingering pear-like departure.
