  • morkzgThis smells almost like a white wine. There's white grape, unripe pear, and almost something like cedar? Like a taru sake. It reminds me of champagne on the nose. Maybe a hint of nuts. Palate is a good balance of bold, tangy acidity and deep umami. It does not feel heavy though, and the acid and umami help to keep this quite dry and refreshing (served chilled). Apple, caramel, chestnuts, and perhaps something like cinnamon. Finish is dry, but lingers with umami and nutty notes. 4.25/5

  • morkzgInteresting nose: on one hand we have brought, juicy tropical notes of pineapple, lychee, grape, bubblegum; on the other I get something deep and umami like nuts, burnt sugar, and maybe even like apple vinegar? Not sure if my imagination. Ah, something like pickled vegetables maybe explains the nose. Certainly more nuts and umami than sweet, fruity summer sake. Memories of summer indeed - perhaps brewed a few summers ago? Decent, but not what I want from a "summer sake". Feels old. 2.75/5

  • morkzgReally nice, juicy, fruity aromas. Orchard and stone fruits, with lots of pear and peach, nectarine, maybe also grape. Rice flour, almonds too maybe. Very juicy, with a great, vibrant acidity. A touch of sugar, then it all fades away quite quickly, leaving behind faint traces of dried fruits, nuts, and umami. Finish is almost non-existent: very light and clean. Really good summer sipper, served chilled. 4.75/5

  • morkzgTaru sake. Apple, wood, and tatami floors. Fairly straightforward for a taru sake. Palate continues the theme, but with a gentle sweetness of pears and orchard fruits. Fairly typical flavours of wood and cedar. Finish is medium, with a tingly acidity to finish up. Good, refreshing, but also a little heavy on the word to be truly a good, light sipping sake. 3.75/5

  • morkzgCreamy, fruity nose. Melon, apple, ripe banana, cream, perhaps yoghurt or fresh cheese, berries, rice porridge, and something vaguely nutty. Really light and clean on the palate. Crisp rice derived umami, very faint hints of fruit and dairy, but mostly cereal notes and a good acidity. Finish is very short and clean. Quite simple, but a really good sipper. 3.75/5

  • morkzgMedium aroma intensity, but a very textbook ginjo bouquet. Green apple, pear, lychee, melon, with a hint of dairy or lactic. Surprisingly straightforward but well executed. The palate is very different and provides a real punch of mature cheese and cereal, with a sweet coating. I'm not sure if this is intentional or a fault, but I don't think I like it. Finish is short and sticky. 1.75/5 This got better after a couple of days. Less cheese stank. 3.75/5

  • morkzgVery aromatic, with lots of ginjo aromas. Bubblegum, peach, strawberry, green apple, pineapple, lychee. The palate is quite different and distinctly features cereal and nuts, like chestnuts and roasted almonds. It reminds me of the milk left after eating a bowl of chocolate cereal. Certainly a hint of dairy, and with some good, clean astringency. Finish is medium, with umami coming and going as the flavour slowly fades. This is really quite enjoyable. Yappari Hakutsuru know their stuff. 4.5/5

  • morkzgCreamy and fruity on the nose. Strawberries, green apple, milk, fresh cheese like mozzarella or cream cheese, green banana. Lots of dairy on the palate as well. Very milky, melon, banana, and a nutty sort of cereal note. Finish is short, quite clean, but not crisp. 4/5

  • morkzgSweet and juicy on the nose. Peach, nectarine and other stone fruits, red grapes, bubblegum, with a tropical hint of pineapple or mango. Zippy, fruity acidity on the palate with some nuts and umami among the sweet, ripe orchard fruits. Finish is quite short. 4.25/5

  • morkzgVery interesting bouquet of aromas: half fruity ginjo, and half deep, dried fruit, pickles and mushroom umami notes. Alcohol is pungent, but overall intensity is surprisingly low. Pineapple, plum, rice, mushrooms. Body is very rich, lots of umami. Pickled vegetables, nuts, mature cheese, mushrooms. Acidity is medium+, alcohol is prominent. Finish is on the short side but not crisp, rather smooth and fades quietly. 4/5

  • morkzgPear, pineapple, bubblegum, rice flour on the nose. Very very pleasant ginjo aromas, quite light and elegant. The palate is light and juicy, with more pear and orchard fruit flavours. Medium body, yet with a distinct astringency that really tightens up the end of the palate. Finishes with green apple and white grape. Very good. 4/5

  • morkzgSoft and smooth dairy aromas are very prominent in this ginjo. Lots of notes of fresh cheese and cream, backed up by hints of green banana, almonds, and nectarines. The palate continues this very soft and smooth profile, with a slightly nutty flavour among the dairy notes, and a creamy texture. Acidity is low, but there is a notable astringency to the end. I quite like this. Unassuming but very well done. 4/5

  • morkzgLight, creamy, with dairy notes and hints of fruit on the nose, featuring bananas, milk, fresh cheese. Faint aromas of fresh nuts. Very light and clean on the palate. Almost none of the fruit of the nose, with little cream. Mostly rice, some dairy and lactic acid. The dairy notes return towards the end with rich milk, nuts, and umami. Finish is long and a little sour. Quite interesting for a junmai ginjo. 3.5/5

  • morkzgBright "yellow" aromas. Lots of juicy pineapple, mango, some bubblegum. Also a bitter note like pepper or basil or anise. Very very soft on the palate, with a much more umami and nuts-forward than one would expect from the nose. Medium acid comes in at just the right time to tingle the corners. Body is medium-full. Quite an interesting profile overall. 4.25/5

  • morkzgLots going on in the nose. Thick, sweet banana and peach, with layers of lactic acid, cream cheese or sour cream, fresh cut grass and almond milk. Very thick on the palate, mouthcoating texture. Big flavours, featuring caramel and toffee alongside shiitake mushrooms and deep umami. Baked banana, brown rice, and roasted chestnuts. Finish is long and nutty, yet surprisingly dry for an overall slightly sweet profile. 4.25/5 chilled 5/5 warm. My god that is good.

  • morkzgLight, clean and refined ginjo aromas. Gentle apple, pear, white grapes and raisins, with a hint of bubblegum. The palate follows suit, with a very light and gentle profile. Very mild sweetness scents a subtle layer of umami that pops its head in and out. All in all, a very pleasing, but not overly imposing nor complex. Makes for easy drinking and pairing. 3.25/5

  • morkzgFine bubbles when poured, like effervescence. Very juicy, with lots of green aromas. White grape, melon, pear, blueberries, overripe strawberries and whipped cream. Fresh, fruity, juicy, bright, but not thick. The palate continues with faint apple and pear notes, but is much more light and clean than the nose would suggest. Hints of rice flour. Acidity is refreshing, with a tingly faint umami at the end. Flavourful yet not heavy, this is dangerously easy drinking. 4.5/5, could do with +1% ABV.

  • morkzgEarthy and grainy on the nose. Slight fruity, bubblegum aromas and apple. Some lactic acid notes. Not very aromatic or complex. Suggestions of aging? Some Hine. Very light and crisp mouthfeel, but with good earthiness and biscuity flavours. Very faint hints of apple over earthy umami. Short, clean finish. This has got to be good warm. Bit underwhelming chilled. 3.25/5 3.75/5 warmed.

  • morkzgVery slightly cloudy. I love the aromas: nutty almonds, grape, green melon, yoghurt. Light, bright, and appealing. Smooth and thick texture, with an almost salty umami flavour. Medium+ acidity, but a gentle sweetness does linger and leave a pleasing aftertaste. Rich, and quietly, elegantly powerful. Finish is on the short side, slightly sweet. 4.5/5

  • morkzgBright, juicy aromas featuring overripe strawberry, peach, some pineapple, and hints of star anise and basil. The nose is reasonably intense, but occupies only a corner of the bouquet of possible ginjo aromas. The palate is bold and spicy with acid, astringency, and umami each taking turns to stand in centre stage. Raisins bring along a faint brown sugar and caramel-like sweetness. The acid is curiously focused at the front of the mouth with a mouth-watering effect. Medium-long finish. 4/5
