Tenmei Junmai Fuku no Ka x Yume no Kaori is a new release of sake by Akebono Sake Brewery. It is a one-time pasteurized Junmai sake, with a youthful appearance that seems to be wrapped in lustre, the presence of abundant acid is conveyed in a bright colour that seems to be shining from the liquid.
On September 16, 2020, the 14th International Sake contest was held in Tokyo. Tenmei Junmai Fuku no Ka x Yume no Kaori won the silver prize.
Rising from the glass is a bitter citrus fruit with a fresh fruity scent like Japanese pear and a green image like lime. In addition, there is a sweet spice feeling with a refreshing feeling reminiscent of star anise, giving the impression that the fragrance is refreshing. A light and smooth taste that spreads supplely. The subtle sweetness is balanced by the fine and smooth acidity, expressing a fresh taste.
The taste that spreads in the mouth is a mellow fruit with a sweet flavour reminiscent of vanilla and a bitterness reminiscent of chamomile. The rich flavour spreads while suppressing the sweetness, and the mellowness is brought out by the light taste. When swallowed, the mellow bitterness develops a soft melting in the mouth. The reverberation of acid that disappears in the mouth after being washed off is gently echoed, and the floral finish reminiscent of jasmine is fluttered softly.
