The nose on this famous sake in Japan is a cool collection of melon, berries, green apple, cut grasses, spring onion, pear, and bright fruit aromas. A light, crisp, and bright jump into a new style of sake that plays with an elevated acidity field that jumps out of the glass. Pitched to wine drinkers, this sake is very expressive with lots of shibumi and acidity elements that drink lively, crisp, and spritzy. Look for layers of flavors such as Asian pear, peach, young melon, persimmon, green apple, and basically young fruit tones that pop on a tantalizing acidity play that says, "Hola!" This is a legendary sake for good and zesty reasons. It’s hard to get in Japan so don’t miss a brew that takes umami to new and vivid expressions. WORD: Famous WINE: Zesty Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: A Yakitori monster.
