Mizu No Shirabe "Sound of Water"

 "Sound of Water" has a really superb nose filled with hints of peaches, grapes, and persimmons with an undercurrent of minerals and green grasses.  The first sip spells a very gentle and delicate sake with a smoothness and confidence filled with a melon slickness.  The middle-mouth is chewy and clean and the finish is a nice disappearing act with no aftertaste.  This is a great "bring to a party sake." Not too fruity and not too dry- just very neutral and balanced.
