Lovely full plum flavours with hints of toasty notes such as oak. Very balanced for an umeshu, lush and full on the palate, with gentle astringency to help regulate the sweetness. Made by steeping plums for 3 years in Junmai Ginjo sake, followed by a maturation period of 2 years. This umeshu is very well balanced without being too sweet. It has good complexity and is not too thick or sticky.
