Country: Japan
Region: Yamaguchi
Wine type: Sake
Varietals: Rice
Varietal notes: Yamada Nishiki, Hattan Nishiki
Notes: Taka, the name of the brewery president/toji, means "noble". His estate rice growing philosophy allows him to brew regionally focused sake full of tension and balance. The local water source here is rich in limestone and that is transmitted to the sake making it one of the most vinous tasting we have ever had. Tasting Note: Well-defined while precise, with aromas of green melon and limestone with a creamy luxurious mid-palate. Mineral-driven with structured acidity and roundness - a timeless style that old-world wine drinkers will easily gravitate towards.

There is so much to like about the Taka’s Noble Arrow. A sake of precision, the Nobel Arrow graces the palate with a striking array of green pear, Mirabelle, spring water and chalky nuances that play beautifully against the live diamond turbot and crab courses. - Galloni notes from a dinner at Saison in San Francisco
