This Junmai Daiginjo has been milled to 28% seimaibuai. It takes 3 days and nights to gently polish the rice grains to reach the incredibly small (2mm) pearly beads. Senshin is then aged “quietly” for over a year. Thus, we are talking about one of – if not – the most pampered sakes in Japan. The nose is laced with young cantaloupe and honey. This supreme sake borders more on a traditional flavor profile that is not afraid to use acidity to balance out the cantaloupe and citrus flavors. There are definite peppery flavors at work and the overall mouth is multi-layered and delightful. WORD: Supreme WINE: Zins/Zesty Whites BEER: Peppery Pilsners FOODS: Light fare with attitude!
