緑川 純米吟醸 Midorikawa Junmai ７２０ml
Clean, smooth, and gracious: this is the essence of the classic Niigata tanrei-karakuchi “light and dry” style. Subtle nose of melon and ginger, creamy soft texture and prolonged but dry finish.
Very, very sweet, super high acidity, low 12% alcohol and definitely trying to be more wine-like. The name is “its the key” (イットキー). The label explains that “It’s the key that finally unlocks the world of sake for all.” Drink less than 5 degrees of chilledｰsake or warmed to 50 degrees of Hot sake.
Koshi-Tanrei and Gohyakumangoku rice polished to 70%. Very gentle taste, good for chilled, room temparature, and hot served.
Sweet aromas of vanilla and cream custard. Round palate entry, very soft and plush in the mouth with a hint of warmth. Builds in breadth and retains most of its freshness as it loses its chill, and when it hits room temperature it loses its inhibitions about showing off its luxurious, silky texture.
This is Koshimeijo’s flagship sake. It is characterized by fruity and gorgeous fragrance.
