Dassai 23 Junmai Daiginjo Niwarisanbu 1800ml 獭祭純米大吟醸二割三分
Brewed by Asahi Shuzo based in Yamaguchi Prefecture, Dassai focus on high quality, supremely modern Junmai Daiginjo sake using only Yamada Nishiki rice. Dassai are also unique in the industry having adapted their methods and brewery to be able to brew year round.
Pours a pale, water white colour in the glass. Supremely elegant on the nose, showing honeysuckle, white strawberry, watermelon rind, along with subtle cream and nougat. Likewise the palate is equally elegant and pure, with green melon and white strawberry sitting alongside pastry, nougat, panna cotta, and vanilla notes. Extremely refined, and with more than a passing resemblance to a crisp white wine, serve this sake chilled on its own or along with fresh dishes such as squid or red snapper sashimi.
