Manotsuru "Four Diamonds"

Junmai Ginjo, Muroka, Gen-shu (un-diluted)


Description: The nose on this "genshu" (undiluted 18%) brew is an arrangement of white pepper, sweet beets, yeast, and ripe watermelon elements. Talk about an expressive sake with layers of feeling and flavor " look for cracked wheat, tabouli, grains, apricot, and trail mix licks. This is a full-bodied Ginjo that is smooth and has a hint of heat in the finish. Feisty and ricey with a very fine layer of shiso (mint) in the underbelly of the fluid. Best served chilled but look for more expressiveness at room temp. A great next day brew that provides a little more fruit in the flavor.

One word to describe this sake brew: Feisty
