Eiko Fuji Junmai Ginjo Namachozo "Glorious Mount Fuji"
The aroma profile on this single pasteurized sake has a suave collection of grape skin, papaya, melon, and peach elements. This is a very elegant, clean, and flavorful sake that has semi-chewy layers of flavors that bounce between melon, peach and blueberry- floating on a mineral water quality. It’s a mouthful of flavor with a soft and round finish that ends quickly for so many faces of fruit and fun. In a word this sake is a very good example of a Ginjo in the raw form. For the very “in-tune” this sake used to be a full-nama, but the brewers feel that a single heating makes this sake drink more balanced and stable and we agree. PS. A good brew for warming but we didn’t say that! WORD: Elegant WINE: Complex reds/ Minerally whites BEER: Clean Ales FOODS: Shellfish, grilled shrimps, lightly flavored pasta, cold chicken, and sushi.
