Traditionally served chilled, Shirakabe Junmai Daiginjo has a full-bodied palate with a hint of sweetness and a smooth, velvety feel in the mouth. Clear and bright in the glass, it has subtle aromas of pear, melon, banana and petrichor. The flavors of vanilla, melon, banana and white mushroom are enhanced by a hint of sweetness.
Though traditionally chilled, this junmai daiginjo can also be warmed, retaining its balance and heightened creaminess, and gaining a stronger umami profile. Savory notes of rice, cream of wheat, and ripe banana also emerge.
