Junmai Daiginjo Genshu CEL-24 2019

Unpasteurised saké, made with a special yeast strain called Cel-24, which reputably brings out a lot of fruity aromas as clearly seen here. Straight out of the bottle, it smelled like sesame oil, yeast and ripe bananas, which developed nicely into estery, exotic fruit aromas with air. Clean and treacly-sweet on the palate, with oodles of exotic fruit flavours - think bananas again, passion fruit, and mangoes. Finishes warm and sweet. Doesn’t quite excel on the drinkability front, yet I was compelled to have about two glasses before I was spent. I felt there was a level of juiciness in the saké despite how rich, ripe, and round it was (kind of like a botrytised Riesling). An excellent end cap to dinner, courtesy of M at C12! — 21 days ago
