This daiginjo is full of subtleties and elegance. The bouquet is clear and pronounced with notes of lily, ripe tropical fruits and honey melon. A full body carries tones of yoghurt, lychee and fresh pear. An overall creamy yet light texture and well balanced umami make this sake easy to drink.

"AOKI Shuzo is located in the northern prefecture of Niigata, known as the snowiest region in Japan. The brewery has been brewing continuously for over 300 years, benefitting form the cold brewing conditions and high skill of the region's Echigo Sake brewer's guild. The leading spirit at AOKI brewery is the idea of ""wago"", a deep appreciation of every step and person involved in the process of making Sake, from growing the rice to the final consumer.
While Niigata style Sake tends to be light, elegant and dry, the signature brand KAKUREI is aiming to emphazise the pure and rich umami of the Sake rice."
