"Buttery nut brittle, banana custard, leaf, and cake follow through on silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-full body with great smoothness and finesse. Concludes with white plum, coconut cream, mango and delicate spice notes on the long, gently warming finish. A delicious and vibrant sake for the table."

Winery Notes:
Aromas of clean honeydew rind, grainy rice with a touch of earth. The impact on the palate is soft and rich but not cloying. A gentle sweetness envelops the tongue while the clean, high-strung acidity does the work. It has loads of body but is able to maintain tightness and structure. While spicy honeydew and dry anise dominate up front, the finish is dry with good spicy white pepper and jasmine notes.
