The nose on this famous sake that was once served at the Imperial Palace for three years in a row is a powerful collection of pear, peach, Granny Smith apple, lemon grass, honey, tangerine, and mineral aromas. Made using an apple yeast, this brew drinks silky, clean, rich-light , delicate, watery, and is quite easy drinking for a Genshu aka undiluted sake. Look for Fuji apple, watermelon, cooked pear, white peach, orange peel, cucumber, mochi, sesame, mineral water, and toffee flavors that whisper throughout the palate with an uplifting finish. This “Black Box” asks the question, "How can Yamadanishiki rice milled to 45% drink like light fruit tones on a gentle and delicate flow?" The answer to the mystery is all on you! WORD: Delicate WINE: Soft Reds/Clean Whites BEER: Belgian Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, caviar, oysters, Champagne fare, crab, lobster, rich and complex cuisines.
