Aizu Chujo Yumenokaori Junmai Ginjo
The nose on this sake made with Yumenokaori brewing rice milled to 55% is a fresh collection of blueberry, melon, pear, plum, and bubblegum aromas. Say hello to a whimsical sake that feels great in the palate and brings a smile to your face with each fruity sip. This is one of those "I can’t believe this is made from rice and water" fruit-bomb sakes that has a ton for fruit reflections. Such as peach, honeydew melon, pear, apple, and blueberry flavors along with a gentle push of bubblegum and blue raspberry Slurpee. But the most fun part of this brew is the slippery nature of the fluid. It’s like a fruit tone Slip ‘n Slide® in the palate that really lets you taste the blending of the water and alcohol in a flavor rush waterslide. Yummy!
