Tenmei Junmai Daiginjo Akaiwa Omachi Nama is brewed by using No. 1001 yeast and Fukushima prefecture’s original Utsukushima Yume yeast. A sake that was created by luxuriously using Akaiwa Omachi, the highest-class brand of ‘Omachi’. It is being aged for at least half a year before it is released. It is one that deserves to be called one of the highest peaks of Junmai Daiginjo in Tenmei series.
It has a fruit-like nuance reminiscent of bananas and melons, you can feel the mellowness hidden in the slightly calming atmosphere due to the ageing. A smooth mouthfeel, the soft umami spreads like stroking the tongue, and at the same time, the sparkling acid tightens vividly, making the rich taste stand out clearly.
In the mouth, a sweet spice like cinnamon and a mild fruit flavour like pear spread, and a sweet and dry taste is expressed. The rich flavour melts and disappears when swallowed, a violet flower-like finish is delicately drifted in the back mouth, where a slight refined sweetness remains.
