Gakki Masamune Junmai "Junjo"
The nose on this extremely hard to get Junmai has a vivid collection of melon, Asian pear, grape, apricot, blueberry, and cantaloupe aromas. Are you ready to try a performance sake that is very “in the moment” in the sake world, and has an ABV of 13%? This uber popular brew is made to tantalize the "new world" sake drinkers with a touch of effervescence, a hint of fruit tones, a lick of acidity, and a watery-like feeling that is fresh and light. Oh and damn tasty too! Look for cantaloupe, apricot, persimmon, lime, and Asian pear flavors on a clean, light, and crisp flow, with a sneaky lemon zest tail. Take note of the very small bubbles that cling to the side of your wine glass, and enjoy this Fukushima-style liquid work of art chilled. You better get two bottles.
