Ginga Shizuku Divine Droplets 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Very 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 Japans extreme north, where below-freezing temperature prevents unwanted bacteria from surviving, thus ensuring a very pure sake. The clear sake is separated from the fermenting rice lees by putting it into canvas bags and allowing the sake to drip out overnight (as opposed to pressing it). Wine Tasting Notes A prominent fragrance, a clean and fresh taste, with flavor deep into the recesses. Truly one of the Rolls-Royces of sake.

Made by Takasago Shuzo, Hokkaido. The only junmai daiginjo in the world that is made in an igloo-like "Ice Dome," at -2C, 90% humidity, and no wind. A prominent fragrance, a clean and fresh taste, with flavor deep into the recesses.
