ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
A bracingly delicious junmai that doesn't waffle around. The Yamada-Nishiki is polished down to 60%, and the numminess of the rice core really brings a breadth to the flavor. It has a fairly restrained, clean, fresh aroma, a texture that clings to the tongue, and a finish with a mineral bite. Warmed, the yummy savory touch of umami is highlighted. Happiness is a warm karakuchi.
