Masumi Nanago Yamahai Junmai Daiginjo "Seventh Heaven"
This unique sake has a brilliant nose filled with citrus, blossoms, minerals, and hot wood. Nanago is fascinatingly delicious on so many levels. Firstly it is a Daiginjo made using the Yamahai technique, which should make it deep and rich, but it is quite the opposite. Bright and crisp elements push this sake to the pinnacle of flavor and the higher acidity level balances out like a dream. How do they do this? Nanago is a must for those wine lovers who think that they have had it all, and serious must for all sake aficionados. WORD: Bright WINE: Tannin reds/crisp whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Dances with citrus based dishes, salty grilled meats/fish, and great with salads.
