Shirataki Jozen Junmai Daiginjo "Indigo"
The aroma field on this extremely elegant and tasty Daiginjo is an array of grapefruit, melon, cooked pear, banana, and oatmeal elements. This sake is an elevator ride of flavors on a smooth and rich flow that is both elegant and complex. First floor, find ripe pear tones. Second floor, look for blueberry hints. Third floor, behold applesauce. Fourth floor will take you to the wonders of sweet rice flavors that combine to make a brew that drinks like royalty. There are peek-a-boo tingles of sweetness. But on the whole, this velvety beast drinks smooth with a breath of richness that appeals to wine drinkers who admire complexity.
