True Sake was able to source 12 bottles of this Juyondai dated 2019.06 which has been bottle aging for 18 months. This is considered leaving its prime tasting form, but we as a group, all agreed that this sake still drinks very much like how the toji intended it to taste. By purchasing this sake you accept the conditions that it is as is! So what is it? The nose on this extremely sought after Junmai Ginjo is a gentle collection of berry, cantaloupe, pear, sweet rice, and apple aromas. Juyondai is known for impact on first sip, and this brew is exactly that – pure impact. It is lively, effervescent, bright, fleshy, and very fruit-forward. Look for a large flavor field of apple, cooked pear, ripe cantaloupe, mango, strawberry, honey, and a hint of fennel. Basically, this is world-class sake that everybody wants to taste and for good reason. A great example of a fruity and balanced sake that excels in a wine glass. If you have ever wanted to taste a brew from the fabled Juyondai brewery this might be your best shot, and we feel it’s worth that shot!
