Fruity nose of apples with spicy, turpentine-like hints; clean and relatively dry with a fair share of acidity and a spicy finish. Very refreshing and clean finish with peppery notes.

PS: this was our second attempt at Asahiyama's Junmai Ginjo. Amazingly, our second review is almost identical to the first one. :)

This junmai ginjo spreads an intense fragrance of turpentine; it has a very clear and refreshing taste with a tingle of spiciness and subtle aromas. Best enjoyed cold or lukewarm. Peppery and pungent finish.
