The Hanagaki Junmai Ginjō (花垣 純米吟醸) is made of Gohuyakumangoku rice milled down to 50 per cent. Slowly brewed at low temperature and fermented over a long period, it has a beautiful ginjō aroma and refreshingly mild acidity with a full-bodied umami flavour. Clean and gentle finish. It can be served chilled or hot.

My first impression was that of light, mild, and watery sake. Fruity nose with hints of banana and green apples. Moderate sweetness and umami. Very refreshing pungency. Slightly bitter and astringent finish, overall mid and well-balanced. Recommended!
