The nose on this supreme offering is a dazzling collection of lime, grape, Granny Smith apple, kiwi, bamboo, honeydew, marshmallow, mint, and orange blossom aromas. It’s not often that a brewery releases a sake and says, "This is our best.” And yet, that is exactly what this sake represents from a brewery that is highly dedicated to their own domaine-grown rice. In fact, they narrowed down their best rice paddy that grows Yamadanishiki, and then took only the best part of this one area to make their best efforts. It’s as close to tasting terroir in sake that you can get. Crisp, light, soft, elegant, silky, with a clean finish, this sake develops within each sip. Look for melon, tangerine, crisp apple, white strawberry, young pear, lychee, pineapple, and whispers of umami in the finish. There is a tannin-like dryness and a hanging shibumi that speaks to wine drinkers who like an elevated acidity play. "Hi no Kishi" begs for a white wine glass. WORD: Terroir WINE: Complex Reds/Acidic Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, Champagne fare, shellfish, pates, and caviar.
