Manotsuru Daiginjo “Maho”
The nose on this ultra-daiginjo milled to 35% is a glorious collection of strawberry, mango, pineapple, melon, and Gardenia petal aromas. It’s no wonder that this sake has won numerous gold medals in the Japan national competition. Talk about liquid luxury in a glass. This brew is as velvety as sake can get with layers of flavors that roll on a smooth and semi-thick fluid. Look for honey, mango, citrus, and melon flavors that move in a lush and chewy flow. It is a great feeling sake for sure and the lower acidity makes this brew world-class and does wonders in your white wine glass.
