The nose on this single-pasteurized summer sake is a gentle collection of cucumber, melon rind, vanilla, cotton, tofu, and steamed rice aromas. This is a summer sake all day long. Built to be light, dry, and very gentle it’s perfect for the poolside and hot summer evening parties. Smooth, watery, silky, and low in alcohol at 14%. There is a tannin-like dryness on the very quick finish that has a peek-a-boo white peppery goodbye. Look for cucumber, iceberg lettuce, green apple, Asian pear, potato, mochi, melon, and citrus flavors that slide through the palate. A very light and enjoyable sake that is really made for summer and it drinks that way.
