ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
HAKKAISAN AWA SPARKLING SAKE
Gentle aroma of rice pudding, honeydew melon, apricot; lightly fruity, with soft, yeasty tones. Strong effervescence. Medium body, nuance of rice and yogurt. Citrus notes at the beginning of the palate, and pear notes on the finish.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is made from Yamada Nishiki rice that has been polished down to 50%.
HOW TO ENJOY
Cheese like aged Comte and Parmigiano Reggiano, seafood like seafood crudo, caviar, shrimp shumai, oysters, and white fish meuniere, sweet and sour pork. The low acidity makes it pair well with desserts like fruit tart, dark chocolate, and apple gelee.
A white wine glass (opposed to a flute) will bring out the aromas. Serve chilled.
