Pasteurized only once (most sake is twice pasteurized), this is an intensely fragrant, fresh and aromatic sake boasting traces of ginger and sweet melon. Very crisp and lively in the mouth, its flavours lean towards bright pear and citrus, with some vanilla and banana. Medium-dry with a long, memorable finish, this elegant junmai (which comes across as more junmai gingo — maybe even junmai daiginjo) married beautifully with an ethereal dish of scrambled egg whites, fresh Dungeness crab and silver fungus.
