This is everything you want a Junmai Ginjo to be and more. A true "sake maker's sake," Gikyo is austere and complex, without feeling too fussy. Take off the newspaper wrapping (set aside for future kanji practice if you like) and enjoy melon and green apple up front, giving way to subtle, satisfying grainy palate. Imagine the flavorful bounty of a nice lager, but with the texture and general sense of well-being that comes with good sake. Yes, please!
