Ichishima Karen "Coy"UN05

Four Hot Words: Light, Clean, Fruity, & Fun
This "New World" sake is actually called "Karen" in Japan, and it is a low-alcohol brew (10%) with a nose filled with peach, lychee and apple aromas. Talk about complexity and questions! How can rice and water taste like such an array of fruit tones? There is nothing "Coy" about this sake as large Fuji apple elements dance in a clean and viscous flow. Behold a layer of sweetness that is brilliantly balanced by a very heady acidity level. Bright and chewy, this fruity brew drinks with an elegance not found in a typical Junmai. WORD: Fruity WINE: Rieslings/ Sauternes BEER: Sweet Belgian Ales FOODS: Dim sum, fried fish, tempura, fruit plates, creamy cheese.
Prefecture: Niigata
SMV: -23
Acidity: 2.9
