This is my first bottle from Aoitenka Brewery in Kakegawa City. Not easy to find, although a celebrity.

Aoitenka Junmai Ginjo

Rice: Yamada Nishiki
Rice milled down to 48% (absolutely extravagant)
Alcohol: 16~17 degrees (strong)
Bottled in march 2007

Clarity: very clear

Colour: almost transparent

Aroma: solid and complex. Fruity/bananas

Body: velvety

Taste: a light junmai tingle
Very fruity: bananas. Turns complex after second sip with some welcome acidity.
Coffee beans, vanilla, bitter chocolate.
Stays elegant after very sip. Almonds revealed by food.

Overall: A discovery!
Milled down to 48% for junmai ginjo is pure extravagance.
Drinks like a fine old white wine.
If drunk cold (which I would not agree with realy), would taste like an expensive ice-cream.
