Other reviews....
This medium sweet NV Juyondai Soko Daiginjo shows all the perfection of great sake! Elegant and delicate, it offers stunning scents of melon, green apple, white flower and steamed rice. Fresh, crispy and vibrant on the palate, it shows a similar smooth and silky texture like Ryusen, but it's lighter, more delicious and seductive. It has a super clean, pure and melting finish, with a nice hint of green spice. Rice: Yamada Nishiki. Seimai-buai: 35%.
