Kubota Manju Junmai Daiginjo “10,000 Ostentatious-nesses”
This is one of if not the most sought after Daiginjo in Japan. This Daiginjo is sophisticated and yet very drinkable, perhaps too drinkable as the phantom finish leaves you wondering if you swallowed or not. The nose is a clever balance of honeysuckle and tuberose. The first sip spells the strength in clarity of this sake. Subtle flavors of fuji apple and tart pear dance through the cleanest mouth in the sake world. WORD: Divine WINE: Light Sauvignon Blanc BEER: Light Ales FOODS: Shellfish, light seafood salad, sushi/sashimi.
