Tamanohikari Omachi Junmai Dai Ginjō, Kyoto Kinki Region (300ml)
Refined and elegant sake made with the famed and noble “Omachi”, (the pinot noir of rice) with an incredibly full, balanced and well-rounded taste. Clear in colour with nice tears and refined aromas of soft plum, cherry blossom and vanilla. Palate hits with plum, cherry, soft berries, “koji” caramel and a nice spicy tail on the finish. Mouth-feel is clean, crisp, very smooth and even a little soft. Complete, integration between the weight of acidity and sweetness, it should be enjoyed slightly chilled, at around 10ºC, or warmed no more than 42ºC. Score: 90 (Michael Pataran, www.WineAlign.com, Jun 2012)
