Ohyama Tomizu Tokubetsu Junmai JH51 "Special Water"

Four Hot Words: Impactful, Silky, Ricey, & Special
The nose on this Junmai that drinks very much like a Ginjo is an array of white grape, apple, pear, cucumber and berry essences. This is not your usual dry and simple Ohyama rather it is a very impactful brew with layers of powder sugar, sweet rice, apple, and young pear flavors. A super flavorful sake that drinks silky smooth and juicy but is not overtly sweet. There is a little astringency that speaks to wine drinkers and a smaller cup highlights the flavor ride. Good fruit tones, good feeling, good sake that speaks the Yamagata style of flavor and feeling. WORD: Flavorful WINE: Crisp Reds/Tight Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Steamed cuisines, lightly flavored dishes, sushi, sashimi.
Prefecture: Yamagata
SMV: -6/-7
Acidity: 1.5
