Junmai Daiginjo Sake 'Asian Beauty - Ichiban Matoi'

Junmai Daiginjo Sake, 'Asian Beauty - Ichiban Matoi', Toyo Bijin
  • Dense, complex, medium full bodied sake with a touch of sweetness.
  • Notes of fresh strawberry, ripe melon and papaya.
  • Yamada Nishiki milled to 40%

A beautifully dense and complex sake, the Ichiban Matoi contains notes of fresh tropical fruit like melon, papaya and strawberry. Gorgeous aromatics, the sake itself is soft with a pleasant off dry flavor, but balanced by a light acidity. A bracing, lively and racy example of the Daiginjo category.  Enjoyable on its own or with lighter fare like fluke or salted and grilled vegetables, this also makes for a pleasantly surprising pairing with fresh fruit.
