Description: The nose on this crisp Junmai Ginjo is a unique grouping of citrus aromas from lemon to grapefruit with a hint of lemon grass. Those sake drinkers looking for a light, clean and gentle brew that has a quick finish look no further. Yumeakari is a smooth and easy sake with hints of lemon tones on a zesty fluid. A gentle minerality comes forth as the fluid warms, but the strength of the brew is how gentle it drinks. “Kire” is Japanese for a quick and cutting finish and this sake does not disappoint. The fun side of the sake is that there is a “Lemonhead” candy quality to it, and that is pretty unique in the sake world.
