Smooth, semi dry, and with low acidity, this is a great everyday junmai to pair with food. As is the case with many of Shichiken's sake, the profile leans away from the "strawberies & melon" profile of classic ginjo, and more into the "steamed rice and stonefruit" aspect that helps it stand up a little better to Western-style food. From the producer: "Our signature sake. The sake name means velvet taste. A fruit-forward bouquet of pear followed by black pepper and mint. Smooth, off-dry, low acidity with medium body, lots of umami and a medium finish with a hint of tomato leaf. The structure is firm with some corners. A subtle sake packed with flavor as a result of a long careful ferment at low temperatures. Chill and put in a wine glass to fully appreciate the aroma. Pair with meat dishes like roast beef."
