Food Pairings: Drink on it’s own or with super light dishes – raw fluke, tilefish or bass, crudité, cucumber, chilled crab or raw oysters. Matches well with the flavor of dashi. Also consider lightly dressed green salads; young arugula with lemon, olive oil, and the barest amount of pecorino would be lovely with this.
Tasting Notes: Floral but reserved on the nose; consider honeysuckle, sweet banana and rice cake, white pepper. Elegant and smooth, a touch of sweetness but finishes with a deft dryness. Medium light weight, light acidity, long finish. Gentle and clean, this sake matches well with the delicate flavors often found in Japanese cuisine. Aged in-bottle completely undiluted, this sake's Yamada Nishiki - which is the highest grade available of Hyogo's rice harvests - is grown in the famed fields of the Toujo District. Less than 1700 bottles made in a year.
