The taste of Chiyonosono Sacred Power Junmai Ginjo sake is characterized by its delicate and nuanced flavor profile, with hints of apple, pear, and melon, and a clean, refreshing finish. It is a well-balanced sake, with a mild sweetness and a subtle acidity that gives it a smooth and easy-drinking character. The aroma is floral and fruity, with a hint of rice and yeast.
Made with the heirloom rice Kumamoto Shinriki which was revitalized after being out of use for 50-100 years.
