We are still tasting new sake (shinshu) and it is only a question to try as many as possible!
Sanwa Brewery (Shimizu Ku) did not disappoint and came up with one in a jiffy!

Sanwa Brewery-Garyubai Junmai Ginjo « Fukuro Tsuri Kashu »

Rice: Gohyakumangoku (Toyama) 100%
Rice milled down to 55%
Alcohol: 16=17 degrees (genshu)
Dryness: +1

Bottled in November 2007

Clarity: very clear

Taste: Junmai tingle. Fruity: vanilla/bitter chocolate/pears/persimmons
Stays long in mouth. Pleasant, elegant. Acidity revealed later.
