Sugawara, master brewer successfully creates this sake close to perfectness. It is the reason that you may find this sake in the most of Japanese restaurant. It is always famous, either for sake newbie or sake drinker. It is one of limited production of "Onna Nakase" label, it is very rare even in Japan. It is translate also to "so beautiful, it makes women cry". Is that true?


Some soft citrus and soft ripe fruits will appeared in your nose. Crispy with pear nuances at the first ship. Lychee and other fruit tones will pass, continue with some cantaloupe, citrus and papaya hint. Some creamy aftertaste and very smooth will end. Full bodied. It is balance between fruity and deep sake, so sake drinker put the Sake Meter as 0. Superb acidity. Last words: clean and balance.

The best temperature

Chilled. Not too cold.

Food pairing

Any sushi-sashimi. Light pasta, salad, light pizza. Fruit parfaits, not too sweet dessert may worked. Medium cheese. Not too saucy food. Avoid: Chinese food, Indian food - any food with strong taste. People love this sake pairing with something smoky barbeque or smoke salmon also.
