Four Hot Words: Subtle, Balanced, Dry, & Clean

We currently do not carry this sake in our store. Call True Sake at 415-355-9555 for availability, size, pricing and special orders.

This Honjozo has a subtle nose of citrus and jasmine tea. What a soft “like- water” experience. So easy to drink but filled with amazingly different mid-mouth flavors including mandarin orange, black tea with a hint of jasmine, and vanilla. It is a very good example of how tender a sake can be, opposite the boozy/jet fuel experience. WORD:Subtle WINE: Gentle reds/light whites BEER:Ales FOODS: Lightly flavored seafood dishes including seafood salad, grilled shrimp, cold lobster.

Prefecture: Yamagata
SMV: +1
Acidity: 1.4
