Tenko 50 Junmai Daiginjo "Heavenly Grace"
The nose on this new offering from an old famous brewery is an interesting collection of melon, apple, banana, citrus, and floral aromas. It is a fun, lively, bright Junmai Daiginjo that is crisp overall but drinks with some weight to the fluid. Spritzy, chippy, lively, and a little tingly this is one of those sakes that screams, “I am alive and I am fun!” Call it a nice attitude brew that has dried cranberries, tangerine, and crisp apple flavors that excel in a white wine glass. It is a happy brew that is great for those new to sake and a wonder to behold for those who know the run of the lot Yamadanishiki sake milled to 50%.
