"Richly textured with hints of lime and a dash of white pepper, crisp and clean on the palate the concept of umami is clearly illustrated by this fine sake. Enjoy as an aperitif, with mackerel sashimi or, for something different, with stuffed artichokes."

Very pale color, deeper than the Wandering Poet but less brilliant. High-pitched, nuanced nose combines melon, lime, mint, nuts and dusty fresh herbs. Juicy and intense, with assertive flavors of citrus fruit, melon, herbs, spices and nuts. Not a heavy style but boasts impressive palate presence and plenty of character. The long finish hints at melon and nuts.
