Tamanohikari Junmai Daiginjo DG01 "Brilliant Jade"

Four Hot Words: Rich, Round, Fruity, & Bright

This is a very important Daiginjo to explore as this brewery uses the famous Omachi rice strain, the father of the majority of today’s brewing rices. The nose, like its name, is indeed brilliant, filled with all sorts of peach, apple and pear scents. Omachi rice yields deep and rich flavors and this does not disappoint; you’ll taste nuts and bananas to pears and cooked coconut meat. The viscous mouth-feel is chewy and plump. Despite an unmistakable fruitiness, the fluid actually ends with dryness in the back of the throat. WORD: Pear WINE: Cabernets/White Burgundy BEER: Pilsners/Mild stouts FOODS: Roasted fowl, dim sum, game, soups and patés.  

Prefecture: Kyoto
SMV: +3.5
