The nose on this stellar ultra Daiginjo made by a Miyagi brewery founded in 1688 is a splendid collection of cantaloupe, pear, stone fruit, cut grass, sugar, and pineapple aromas. Aged for a year, this gravity free-drip sake made with Yamadanishiki milled to 35% is smooth, layered, luxurious, juicy, and extremely expressive. In a word, this is a masterpiece! In a second word, this is elegant intensity. This is one of the most pampered sake in our inventory, which means you can literally taste the intention of the master brewer. What is that intention? Impact. This is one of the most impactful and delicious premium sake you will ever taste. Look for a vast array of deep and profound flavors such as Honeycrisp apple, pineapple, strawberry, papaya, melon, mango, rock candy, with a follow-up of ocean water, mineral, raisin, light soy sauce and an umami finish that reminds you that this is rice at its finest. Juicy, bold, and balanced, this "Akatsuki" is perfection in a glass. WORD: Amazing WINE: Bordeaux/Rich Whites BEER: Fruity Ales FOOD: Champagne fare, oysters, caviar, lobster, foie gras, karasumi.
