DASSAI 23 JUNMAI DAIGINJO

DASSAI 23 JUNMAI DAIGINJO

 

Tasting Notes

This Junmai Daiginjo was born from a single challenge - polishing Yamada Nishiki to the limit of limits - 23% remaining of the original rice grain. The nose presents an irresistibly elegant flowery bouquet with a soft, delicate, honey-like sweetness, and the flavor blooms exquisitely in your mouth. The long finish is a gentle waterfall of flavor that hits the center of your palate and dissipates into bliss-like mists, begging for another sip.
