This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
This viscous junmai daiginjo has notes of sour cherry and melon. Aged for one year at a cool temperature of 23°F, this sake has an easy, honeydew finish (aging mellows out a sake). We featured this sake for Sakqueso in 2020, and found that a mild cheese works best. Gruyere was a fine pairing, but the optimal cheese pairing with this sake is fresh mozzarella with wasabi and shoyu. It was almost like having a luscious piece of toro with sake! Drink chilled.
