Denshin "Ine"

One of the best labels in the sake world, this Junmai has a gentle nose with light hints of steamed rice, cucumber, hay, and mint. This “Ine” is a round, clean, smooth, and dry trip though the realms of a ricey Junmai. A very gentle sake that drinks easy, but has a peek-a-boo crispness that comes out at certain temperatures and sips. Look for young peach and tangy apple tones on a slick fluid that gets even easier in a larger glass. An overall dry brew but more apple and sweetness emerges from the depths as the sake finds comfort in your pallet.
