Kubota Senju Ginjo '1000 Long Lives' Sake 720ml
Four Hot Words: Dry, Crisp, Light, & Drinkable
The nose is a party of dried fruit, minerals, nutmeg, ripe plum, and banana cream pie. Oooooh the Kubota legend brings forth a honjozo that belts around flavors such as caramel, cotton candy and cocoa in a very dry and of course clean package. There is a bit of back door acidity and an unmistakable aftertaste that revisits the cotton candy elements. Clean and clear this honjozo gives one a good impression of a layered sake that works better at or near room temperature.
Pairings: Sake pub fare, salty and savory, grilled everything!
