The taste of sake also changes depending on the variety.
Yamada-Nishiki has a feminine gentleness.
The difference between the two can be easily perceived by comparing the two while imagining the masculine strength of Omachi.

TASTING NOTE/2018 Vintage
The aroma is gentle, but shows a variety of expressions, including plant nuances such as blue grass and grains, and botanical aromas, although it is gentle.
On the palate, you will feel a pleasant stimulation from the gas, and you will clearly taste the fresh fruit flavor and bitterness like chewing citrus peel.
This umami and bitterness give a clear sense of the characteristics of the Omachi grape variety.
As time goes by, the bitterness settles down and becomes more balanced.
The aroma is even more distinctive, with a clear image of ripe banana-like tropical fruit.
The initial taste is mild, but as time goes by, both the flavor and aroma open up, and the unique potential of Omachi is felt. Please enjoy the changes over time.
