The nose on this IWC World Champion Trophy Ginjo is a slick collection of cherry, raspberry, raisin, honey, fig, white peach, and banana bread aromas. Ginjo sake is an un-loved category of sake with some form of stigma that keeps them from being as loved as Junmai sake. Why is that? This world-class sake wants to know too, as it is a superb expression of Ginjo sake. Milled to 50%, which is Daiginjo in nature, it is smooth, rich, bright, slightly effervescent, juicy, silky, and layered with a gentle watery texture it drinks like liquid gold. The first impression is the stunning balance of this brew followed by a stellar elegance. Look for juicy flavors such as strawberry, fleshy pear, mango, papaya, and sweet rice that float from start to quick and dry finish. If you have a “thing” against Ginjo sake, maybe it’s time for you to get your Sawahime on to finally taste pure excellence.
