Umenishiki Sakehitosuji "Gorgeous Plum"
This Ginjo is a genshu with a subtle fruity nose mixed with koji rice and vanilla. The flavor in this genshu is all forward with a nice round middle and a complete and confident finish. There is no denying the fruit-filled flavors but the clean and crisp acidity blends perfectly with the over-all mouth to make a harmonized sake full of potency and subtlety. A great example of a Ginjo that goes both ways – well with food and well on its own. This is one of the best sakes to pair with cooked fish. WORD: Balanced WINE: Confident Reds/Strong Whites BEER: Pilsners/Ambers FOODS: All cooked fish dishes, will stand up to spice.
