Bishonen Junmai Ginjo JG03 "Beautiful Boy"

Four Hot Words: Round, Rich, Sweet-rice, & Smooth

This sake is currently discontinued from production.


The nose is a blend of steamed brown rice and custard. The sweet and savory play is very evident in the first sip that moves from caramel tones into a rich and creamy rice pudding flavor. It has a very plump mouth feel that borders on thick and chewy and the viscosity is teased by a nice acidity play that leaves a deep rich warm smoothness on the back of the throat. This is a great example of a red wine drinker's Ginjo with full ripe flavors that are forward in the mouth and leaves with a full-bodied aftertaste. WORD: Caramel WINE: All Reds/Strong Whites BEER: Pilsners/Big Ambers FOODS: Fried Meat Dishes, Burgers, Salmon in butter sauce, miso-based dishes.

Prefecture: Kumamoto
SMV: +2
Acidity: 1.7
