Konteki "Tears of Dawn" Daiginjo Sake (720ml)

SKU #1059559

From the importer: "From one of Japan's smallest breweries, this Daiginjo is made with Japan's highest quality rice and local Fushimi mizu, the soft, pure water from Japan's Eastern Mountains. Highly-respected rice farmer Masayasu Tanaka carefully works the naturally fertilized soils of his farm in eastern Tottori prefecture to grow some of Japan's best quality Yamada Nishiki, considered the pinnacle of premium sake rice...The aromas of anise, banana, and a hint of sweet rice are quite complex. These same flavors come rushing through the full-bodied palate followed by such a pleasantly long and clean finish that you'll hurry back for more!"

Banana cream and anise seeds are present throughout the pallet. This Daiginjo is light and dry with a smooth finish. It is recommended to be served cold between 40-60 degrees. Fresh oysters and fish go well with this sake.

This super creamy smelling sake has scents of ripe banana and red licorice. There is also a light background scent of sautéed mushrooms. On the palate, it is initially on the plush side but, this is followed by a nice dryness and mineral bite. The banana scents carry over onto the palate with vanilla bean cream flavors and pear. Very smooth and easy to drink. Nice, long finish. An excellent sake, especially at this moderate price.

A clean, polished brew. Bright, clear aromas of green apple, green grape, honeydew, rice flour, lemon and white blossom. The sake feels light but not watery on the palate, with a unique chalky grip not unlike fine-grained tannin of a quality aged red wine. A subtle flavor, and one that reminds me of fresh tart fruit rather than ripe sweet fruit. Acidity and umami are understated as well; there is just the right amount to offset the sake's faint sweetness and provide lift. Finish is crisp and tidy. This is one to sip slowly and contemplate, or to enjoy with the delicate flaky white fish and sashimi.
