This beautiful saké starts out lush and fruity with a weighty mouthfeel and then miraculously morphs itself into a light and dry finish. Aromas of tropical fruits, ripe pineapple and banana are followed by flavors of dry pear and kiwi.
Pair with grilled pork, fish and chicken dishes, or try creamy pea and goat cheese risotto, light pastas, and Greek salad.
Pure saké made with rice polished to 51-60% and only rice, water, koji and yeast. A super-premium saké grade.
