A slight yellow-chartreuse tinge indicating a bit of aging with bright banana, Asian pear, watermelon, honeydew, “soft” koji, hint of bubblegum and fresh yeast – biggest impact on a saké aroma. Banana continues through the palate with notes of soft pear, crab apple and muscat. Nice soft opening with a light and unassuming mid palate. It further opens to a pleasant-fresh fruit flavour and a long subtle finish. This is great sake for spring with a nice alcohol to fruit balance. Great to pear with white fleshed sashimi – a marvelous composition of skilled Nihonshu making! Score: 91 (Michael Pataran, www.WineAlign.com, Jun 2012)
