Mantensai "Star Filled Sky" Junmai Ginjo Sake (720ml)

SKU #995999 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Very pale yellow. Assertive aromas of citrus fruits and smoke, with a subtle saline element. Fairly rich and voluminous but with an airy texture. A very suave, mouthfilling example with a lightly sweet impression and very good breadth. 2007

K&L Notes

Made with Yamada Nishiki & Tamakasae rice from the Totturi Prefecture, one of the least populated in Japan. This sake is aged three years in stainless steel tanks before release and uses two times the koji mold when turning the rice starch into sugar. The result is two times the umami! It shows a nose of honey, and an almost Riesling-like aroma. Soft on the palate, with a nice clean finish and good richness, with a hint of sweetness.
