Takasago Morning Glow Tokubetsu Junmai Sake NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Very pale, bright color. Subtle nose hints at potato and lichee. Fresh and slightly fruity (lemon?), but almost too subtle for this taster. Offers a light touch, though, and an impression of coolness. Finishes smooth and persistent. This is brewed on the island of Hokkaido with water that comes from melted snow. Wine Tasting Notes Pleasant aromas of earthy rice and fresh lychee nuts. On the palate, it has a wonderful viscous, creamy texture with hints of lemon peel and sandalwood. The flavors are pure and very long, yet this sake still retains a crispness tot he finish. a remarkable Tokubetsu Junmai sake.
