Aromas of juicy white peaches, nectarine and wine blossom.
A beautifully balanced and structured sake with juicy peach, strawberry and nectarine flavours sweeping smoothly across the palate. A slight sour edge develops to delicately define the clean finish with gentle acidity.
Suited to match with the purity of seafood and raw seafood such as sashimi, scallop ceviche or a seafood platter. Matches well with white meat dishes such as chicken, veal or pork. Perfect with a poached chicken breast and side salad, roast chicken or marinated and grilled pork chops. This is a sophisticated sake to happily sip on its own with just a few nuts or crackers and dip as a side dish.
Recommend serve chilled.
