Katafune Daiginjo "Tobindori"
The nose on this world class gold medal winning Daiginjo is a splendid collection of blueberry, kiwi, honeydew, and tangerine peel aromas. Talk about a sake that talks back to you! This is one of “those’ kinds of sakes that has the amazing ability to linger in the palate in such a way that it would peak the interest of a professional judge. Look for layers of ripe and tropical fruit tones that explode at certain moments throughout the sip. Juicy licks of strawberry and pear tart roll on the fleshy smoothness, and there is a sneaky heat that compounds the flavor. Chilled and in a white wine glass brings forth the brightness. WORD: Expressive WINE: Complex reds/hot whites BEER: Crisp ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, clean fare, oysters.
