The nose on this American made Dassai is a slick collection of melon, strawberry, rock sugar, orange, mango, blueberry, fennel, fresh grape, and pineapple aromas. Say hello to the “other Dassai 23” that was conceived in Japan, but born in the US. Using Yamadanishiki brewing rice from Japan that is milled to 23%, this Ultra Junmai Daiginjo drinks smooth, round, silky, and clean, with a sublime elegance and an off-dry finish. In a word, this is the most expensive “craft” sake made in the US, and perhaps the reward is in the flavor field that is immense and very intriguing. Look for grape, mango, melon, Fuji apple, finger lime, strawberry, fig, and powdered sugar flavors that slide across the palate, with a touch of shibumi and a mineral finish. With a 14% ABV and pasteurized only once, this special sake excels in a white wine glass with a gentle chill. WORD: Elegant WINE: Velvety Reds/Smooth Whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, caviar, lobster, crab, oysters, foie gras, and other Champagne fare.
