Dewazakura, Oka Cherry Bouquet NV

This sake is made from a combination of half Dewasansan and half Haenuki rice polished down to 50%. It has an inviting bouquet with a touch of almond nuttiness and vanilla and a gentle background note of savoury umami character. It fills the mouth with a richly textured and concentrated rice quality that’s gently pear-like and liquoricey and initially creamy before gripping the palate with a fine mouthfeel. Winner of the Yamagata Ginjo Trophy in 2015.
