Dassai 39 Junmai Daiginjo Sake 1.8L Gift Box 獭祭純米大吟醸三割九分

Imagine wading through a field of white flowers, the spring breeze tickling your skin, and a succulent mango in your palm. Now open your eyes to find your imagination come to life with Dassai 39. A skillfully balanced Junmai Daiginjo that brings a rush of fruit flavors to your palate.

The rice is milled to just 39%, which gives Dassai 39 its smooth, mellow taste.

This Daiginjo fits in between Dassai “49” and “23” in terms of milling rates and is both similar and different to its sister brews. The nose is fruity with koji rice, apple, honeydew, and strawberry aromas. A very plush sake that is loaded with fruit basket flavors and has a very wine-like acidity presence with a long finish. Chewy, round, and soft, but bright – go figure! Hints of pear, apple, blueberry and honeydew on a fleshy fluid that is lively and velvety. “39” drinks almost nama-like and beware of fruit flies who will surely find your glass within minutes. 

FOODS: Clean fare, elegant flavors, fruit salads, avocado salads, cheese plates.

Alc: 16%
