Gokyo Ne Ne "Five Bridges"
This luscious sparkling sake has a nose filled with sweet rice, minerals, mint and melon aromas. Use a Champagne flute to catch the most impressive fruitiness of this semi-thick brew. The sweetness is pronounced but the high acidity really breaks the wild bronco of fruit, and the fizz is full and fun. It is both chewy and fat and look for flavor elements including white grapes and raisins. The finish is fast and quick for so much wonderful flavor, and don't forget to lick your teeth for a grapefruit farewell. WORD: Grapes WINE: Sparkling BEER: Sweet ales FOODS: Champagne fare.
