Fruity notes of lime and young melon. Dry, clean with simple bubbles and a refreshing pink grapefruit like flavour on the palate. Lemon and citrusy zest on the finish. Great body and complexity.

'John' Sparkling Sake, Keigetsu, 6x750ml
The sparkling “John” sake was made for Mr. Matsumoto’s good friend John. It is made with Gin no Yume rice as a Junmai Daiginjo (50% polish) before it is made sparkling with CO2. The sake is crystal clear with aromas of peach and cherry blossom on the nose propped up by lively bubbles and a bone dry finish on the palate. It won the Sparkling Sake Trophy at the International Wine Challenge competition in 2016.
