Spice, minerality, and banana skin dominate the aroma profile. Lychee, melon, herbs, vanilla essence and concentrated mineral flavors keep the sake focused well into its long, clean, ethereal finish. Try it with caviar, blue crab fritters, grilled kobe beef, or any mild yellow and slightly salty cheese.

International Wine CellarVery pale yellow. Complex nose offers saline, herbal and spicy notes, with a minty coolness. Wonderfully subtle, complex and precise, with a distinctly ethereal quality, high-pitched minerality and superb lift. Finishes very dry and persistent, with lovely lift. This is made inside an igloo in Hokkaido, in Japan's extreme north, where below-freezing temperature prevents unwanted bacteria from surviving, thus ensuring a very pure saké. The clear saké is separated from the fermenting rice lees by putting it into canvas bags and allowing the saké to drip out overnight (as opposed to pressing it).
