Description: Talk about packaging? This well-dressed Dai Ginjo has a nose filled with ripe peach, strawberry, pomegranate, and cotton elements. What a light and bright sake, with each grain of rice milled to 45% one can taste the cleanliness in this brew. There are citrus tones throughout the soft and even flow that jump out in the crispness of the finish. A nicely elegant sake that is as cool and clean as stream water. A perfect gifting sake that will please in many ways. Think smooth and divine.
