Notes: Tentaka uses triple-filtered water from an underground stream to brew this sake, then uses the laborious, low-yielding, ultra-gentle drip-pressing method of shizuku. Power, purity, and finesse are the result. While lime, mint, and lychee dominates the nose, the softness and suppleness of this medium-bodied sake has flavors of honeydew melon, ripened pear and fresh cut hay amplified by vibrant overall acidity. The laser-focused finish has an enjoyable dusty character with clean anise-like flavors. It doesn't get much better than this!
