Taiheizan "Grand Mountain"
Description: This Gold Medal winner has a graceful nose filled with green apple, honeydew melon and unripe strawberries. What a wonderful first sip-sake. Your palette will enjoy a rush of silky flavors that roll on a viscous fluid that has fruit forward goodness and ends in a watery goodbye. Very elegant with slippery layers of depth and a gentle Daiginjo sweetness. A must for those looking for an exceptionally flavored sake made the old fashioned way that slides and shimmies.
