SAKE SWEETNESS

DESCRIPTION

Made using Yamadanishiki rice grown in Sado Island. It is graceful and elegant, the nose is the bouquet of roses , orange blossom and apple. Complex sweet spice notes towards the finish.

SOMMELIER'S NOTES

Yamadanishiki is hard to grow up north in Japan, however, they manage to grow a small batch in Sado Island just starting a few years ago. The small batch of rice is why there is so little of this award winning sake.
