Umenishiki Sakehitosuji "Gorgeous Plum"
Description: This Ginjo is a genshu with a subtle fruity nose mixed with koji rice and vanilla. The flavor in this brew is all forward with a nice round middle and a complete and confident finish. There is no denying the fruit-filled flavors but the clean and crisp acidity blends perfectly with the over-all mouth to make a harmonized sake full of potency and subtlety. A great example of a Ginjo that goes both ways " well with food and also on its own. This is one of the best sakes to pair with cooked fish.
