The soft water of Fukui, combined with the robust Kokuryu brewing style, produces a sake that is well-rounded, gently aromatic and surprisingly incisive. This is a classic daiginjo sake that was first introduced in 1975. The perfect kaiseki sake for two, subtlety embracing the flavors of every course. Serve cool at around 55 degrees Fahrenheit, bringing to room temperature as the meal progresses.

    This medium dry NV Ryu Daiginjo is light and elegant, with scents of melon and peach. It is smooth on the palate, with a spicy finish.
