The pale silver hue of this sake is like a soft moon on a crisp night. The flavor follows this imagery too, with a clean, dry mouthfeel and engaging notes of Asian pear, not too strong, but just right. Before getting too caught up in this sake’s savory flavors, take a moment to admire its aroma, a marvelous mix of pineapple and rice pudding. Keep in mind Kurosawa Ginrei took home silver in the 2018 World Sake Challenge, so it’s bound to be special.
Kurosawa is brewed in Tohoku region.
