Ohyama Junmai Daiginjo "Zuisho"
The nose on this sake that translates to good fortune has a glorious collection of cantaloupe, mango, green papaya, apricot, fuji apple, pastry, and wild flower aromas. Talk about a smooth and uplifting Daiginjo sake that drinks very gently and elegantly. Fresh, soft, and velvety this off-dry brew has lots of body, but drinks light and speaks to drinkers who like nuance in their sake. Look for Asian pear, powdered sugar, citrus, pomegranate, mineral water, and flinty flavors that flow to a quick finish. A great example of premium hand made craft sake that shows you how smooth sake can drink. WORD: Smooth WINE: Off dry reds/Flinty Whites BEER: Light Ales FOODS: Champagne fare, lobster, crab, caviar, sushi, and sashimi.
