Description: How can one describe perfection in a bottle? This stellar Daiginjo has a nose filled with white peach, apples, grapes and pear. If we used a “Sake Social Partner’s Top Recommendation” system this sake would carry that title. A very soft pear tonality pervades this deeply complex sake that drinks as easy as a “wet dream.” A full bodied sake wrapped in a delicate texture that drinks like poetry. A liquid once in a lifetime sake for all fans of “rice wine.”
