Description: This dream sake has a classic nose filled with ripe peach, cantaloupe, and raisins.  The first sip of “the Gate” makes you a believer, as a chewy viscosity moves from start to finish in a velvety and creamy rush. A solid acidity play mingles with ripe and juicy flavors such as pears, bananas, and mangos.  This sake spells for a very “professional” Junmai Daiginjo experience that allows a drinker to taste a bit of heaven. The kimoto method adds a creaminess and softness to the richness of the brew.
