Tasting Notes

Clean, Crisp, Refreshing! Its dry entry has a slight zest of grapefruit. Opens to reveal white stone fruits--nectarine or peach. A tease of white chocolate gives a surprising finish. Its unique character envelops a wide range of pairings that will bring out the best in everyday foods.

Food Pairing

This sake brings out the best in every day foods and pairs well with salads, white fish, ceviche, and citrus based sauce
