Bentenmusume Junmai Goriki 26BY Sake
The appearance is clear and very pale straw colour. At room temperature the aroma has a very slight suggestion of peach around warm rice base. The flavour is clean with a tingly suggestion of peach leaving a dry zingy aftertaste around the edges of the tongue. We found the best temperature for drinking this sake to be 40~45˚C. At this temp. the aroma is warm and ricey. The flavour is more mellow still with a hint of peach and slightly sharp aftertaste.
Tottori Prefecture, Japan
Made using Goriki rice which is produced only in Tottori prefecture.
Bentenmusume's character is the dryness, and full of Umami.
