An excellent example of a coarse-filtered sake (nigorizake). This type of sake is characterized not only by its texture and sweetness, but also by its melon-like flavours, and this is where Sayuri excels, allowing just enough of the melon flavour through, without being overpowering (yes, I've discarded some other brands' nigori sake for exactly this reason).
The only sake I've tasted, but it was a good choice and I see no reason to turn to another. The pink bottle and delicate aesthetic of the label caught my eye, and it didn't disappoint. This is an elegant drink, a little harsh with an interesting texture due to the coarse filtering at first, but smooth the rest of the way through your bottle. Sip it chilled, slowly, and enjoy.
VEry good wine. I liked it more than some red wines at $25+ Smooth and delicate.

60% merlot, 20% cabernet sauvignon, 20% cabernet franc. Reddish purple core. Wild game, rose petal, and lavender scent the nose, progressing to herbs and red fruit.

Wine Tasting NotesUsing only selected rice and rice koji, "SAYURI" is brewed up carefully with the natural water of Rokko. It has a refreshing aroma, natural sweetness and smooth aftertaste. A good match not only with Japanese food like Yakitori or Sukiyaki but also with Western cuisine.
2010: The dense ruby/purple-hued 2010 possesses copious notes of graphite, blueberries and black raspberry liqueur intermixed with subtle smoky oak. A more structured effort than other recent vintages, deep, pure, full-bodied and impressive, this pro... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Showy but still nicely defined, as brioche and sweetened butter notes lead the way for verbena, hazelnut and kaffir lime flavors, which all glide nicely through the finish. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now. -JM Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Arrosee, L 1500ml
This outstanding l'Arrosee is consistent with the Burgundian style that this terroir routinely produces. Never massive, at its best it offers intense flavors of kirsch, raspberry, crushed rock, and spice box. The full-bodied flavors are ethereal in t... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Arrosee, L' 750ml
A dessert wine made from botrytized grapes of 38 year old vines. A classic blend of the local white grapes; Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. A wine of great versatility with concentrated apricot, honeycomb and floral aromas. Sweet, complex with a surprising acidity to complement your next cheese plate.
