Tasting notes by sommelier Shinya Tasaki


It offers fruity aromas like quince, pear, yellow peach, and apricot, among others, accompanied by floral notes such as jasmine, linden, and fragrant olive, along with a freshness reminiscent of green bamboo. The combination creates a vibrant, refreshing impression. Subtle mineral notes like fresh mountain springs and delicate rice scents akin to mochi or rice flour all harmonize with notes resembling almond milk.


The initial impression presents a gentle, refined sweetness alongside a soft mellowness. It showcases a distinctly robust flavor of Yamadanishiki as it expands, while maintaining a well-balanced profile. The first half exudes smoothness, while the latter half delivers a sharper impression. Even in the aftertaste, a lingering elegance of both fruit and floral notes, combined with a sophisticated creaminess, persists.
