The nose on this very flavorful sake is a gentle collection of rose water, juniper, melon, and berry aromas. Get ready to say one of the most fun words in the sake world – Gohyakumangoku! What the heck? This is one of the most famous sake brewing rice varietals in the history of sake, and when you mill or polish each grain to 40% remaining, you are talking about a world class sake wonder. Round, smooth, fleshy, silky, compact, and a quick dry finish, this special sake drinks with a confidence and playfulness that will baffle the professionals and reward the newbies. Look for cooked apple and pear, raspberry tart, flan, ripe melon, and a tingle of citrus flavors that mingle with sweet rice tones that produces an enjoyable, semi-sweet drinking experience, and a clean and dry finish. It’s a performance sake that is also controlled and appeals to complex wine drinkers looking for rice and water love. WORD: Liquid Love WINE: Full Dry Reds/Crisp Fruity Whites BEER: Fruity Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, shellfish, oysters, savory pasta, and high-end meats and fowl.
