has a sprightly filled nose of veggies and watermelon hints. The first sip feels strong, but is greeted with a gentle and smooth follow up of subtle green apple and mineral flavors. The thickness is quite noticeable and makes for a nice chewy experience ending in long dry legs down the back of the throat. The mouth speed is quite slow and this is made all the more enjoyable by an abundance of fruit tones and sincere dryness. A very solid starter Ginjo
for beginners and a friend to the well versed.
