The 7pm bottle from the Hinemos brand.
A refreshing sparkling sake that tastes like sweet-and-sour fruits. The flavour combines sweetness and umami, while the finish is light and dry. A great way to kick off a party! This sake undergoes a secondary bottle fermentation, just like champagne. The slightly cloudy look comes from the presence of fine rice grains and yeast.
