Tonoike Sanran Junmai Daiginjo
The nose on this very fruity Junmai Daiginjo is a welcoming collection of melon, berry, Asian apple pear, koji rice, and honeysuckle aromas. Say hello to fermented rice and water perfection! Why? Because this is one of those brews that makes you scratch your head and wonder how rice and water can taste like white grape, mango, pear candy, mango, and grapefruit flavors. How? Who knows, but who cares when a sake is crisp, bright, with lots of tingle, and packs a fruity punch. This is a fleshy Daiginjo that drinks light in weight but full in flavor and as the fluid warms in the glass say hello to a great tangerine departure. Lively and very impressive this sake is a great example of new style Junmai Daiginjo that drink very bright and fun.
